Best Faleshia Murphy Poems

+ Fav Poet


I went on a road trip with my brother and dad
And I want to share the time that I had
We left from Indiana to New York City we were heading
To be a part of my sisters wedding
I didn't have the kids so I thought yes smooth trip
I lied to myself sure was fooled forget it
We had to keep stopping it just would'nt last
For some strange reason we kept running out of gas fast
My dad got hungry as his stomack loudly grawles
But there wasn't another rest stop for at least 20 miles
We had a smooth ride until traffic started to jam
We got restless trying to do anything we can
Then the cops pulled us over and issued a speeding ticket
I'm not the driver I'm not paying it
The wedding was beautiful and so was she
I got to see my best friend and spend time with family
now Iam sad and feel so alone
Back on this long trip it's quiet all the way home
For vacation this summer I plan to go back
But this time Iam taking the kids and riding the amtrak

    Sounds like one of my road trips! Enjoyed reading this. Thank you for your kind words. On your comments regarding my work Note to Self, thank you. I quit my job as a drug/alcohol counselor to be a writer when my daughter's mom died 2 years ago. With almost no support we are together nearly 24/7 so it can get overwhelming at times. It's all good, but I do need to take care of me or I'm no use to her. Tony

    Funny--I feel your pain--too much family can get crowded.

    Taking Amtrak is a good choice for the next trip, Faleshia. Still, in spite of the ticket, it sounds like you probably had fun on this trip to your sister's wedding. Family moments like these are to be treasured. Best wishes for success in the contest! Love, Carolyn
