The sun glares in my eyes as tears stream down my cold face.
Through the shattered windshield I see the clouds wistfully glide by, unaffected by the horrible event that just happened.
An erie peace fills the destroyed cab, as I lie, upside down.
The searing pain of a metal bar is lodged deep within my chest.
I still hear the tires spinning, as I sit motionless,
at the bottom of the wooded hill.
I look over to see the path of devastation that my speeding vehicle just caused.
I wonder if anyone was coming to my aid.
I gently close my eyes, only for a moment...
When they open I am driving down the open road.
Such a brief daydream as I drifted off.
Only for a moment...
