Toyota No Brakes

In many times in my life I always looked for exits. Could only get so far and I get pulled over in the intersections. I called them the Hate PD. Some of them I use to call my allies but I was to blind to see. They come at with their lights all blue and red. Saying negative things that get inside my head. Making me break and pullover. Asking God "why me", then I look over my shoulder. "Landon this GPS conscience speaking. These negative thoughts silence them, start doing and stop over-thinking!" On the road again as I see the red and blue lights are getting closer. Put my foot on the gas as they're yelling at me to pullover. Give up was turning into keep going Now I see more lights as I'm doing a 65 in a 53 I'm weak turned into I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me. Flying past those exits with no hesitation. Because I'm not braking for anybody who wants to keep me from my destination. No one can replace me. And my enemies do not faze me. Slowing down as I shed a happy tear. Its quiet, I look at my rear view noticed the lights have disappeared. Believe in yourself and God with all the problems your facing. "Landon, thanks for driving. You have reached your destination."

No wonder their commercials keep saying "Let's go places!" This is a very imaginative write.

Your poem is perfect, I like the uplifting end, sometimes we need to believe in ourselves and God. The way you state above. I also like the thought of you not holding back or braking for someone trying to hold you back. I don't know if you noticed. I Favorited this poem, the first time I read it. The ending spoke and made me smile. Landon, if you go to your member area, you will see this poem has been favorited one time. Well only cause you are new. You see not bad for a new poet. Goodnight

Landon, this kind of strikes me odd.. It sends out a good message "Believe in yourself and God with all the problems you're facing." But, at the same time, I'm wondering about this line. "I called them the Hate PD." I know a song I heard yesterday.. "I want to choose your friends." <---lol... Sorry I could not help it. Happy Tears are good... Hold on where are my manners,, A nice warm WELCOME to poetry soup. Dropping by to invite you to my latest contest. You will find the contest page on the top left hand side* -Looking forward in following and reading your poetry. Hope to hear from you soon. You will enjoy the community, we are one big happy family. (Drama & Love. LOL) ~ Take Care!! From: your new poet friend @-> LINDA <-@
