THE OPEN ROAD

Down dusty roads by ways, Hidden trails spreading wide. I've been seeking freedoms, Blazing liberty on the back, Of my Harley Davidson two, Wheeling masterpiece. Along our nations country side. I'm casting aside social shackles, To breathe fresh airs exhaust Fumes, Loving every moment of it. Feeling destiny's winds brushing, Raw bare skin exposed. To the elements. Images disappearing from, Realities rear view mirror, Igniting a flame within, America's rambling son, A drifter gone wild, Behold a restless spirit, Eagerly roaming. Chasing the whims of chance, Leaving it to fates navigation. I’ll rest here awhile, Just observing. Until destiny's song spurs, Me forward. The open road beckons, Once more I hear it calling. Pushing the pedal to the metal, Chromes steel shines. The distant interstate sign, States no speed limit ahead. God's heavenly highway, Lies beyond this point. I'll ride on my friend Humming hymns last refrain, Blinded by taillights amber glow. Lord embrace this motorcycle man, He's lived hard but loved well. Riding along hells edge, Heading into, The last light of the setting sun. BY: CHERYL ANNA DUNN
