What do you think this poem "Open Road" is about? Running away from life, seeking peace of mind or feeling like there's no end to your troubles?
I sought peace on an open road,
With a seat belt on, windows rolled up, hiding me from the cold.
Strapped in, as though life was about to end –
Trying to save myself.
I sought peace, on an open highway, as others passed me by.
I sought rest, ease of a mind – the troubled kind
Wrestled with thoughts
Tangled in knots
The road, wide and long
Seeing no bend,
But I thought peace might be at the end.
Because in there,
I hear the sound of turbulence
Whistling through this window
I see the blurred vision of rain,
Wetting my windowpane
However, I’m strapped in -
Hiding in –
A makeshift sanctuary
Although these thoughts, they tarry.
Wanting nothing more than peace
So I sought -
On an open road –
Wide and long -
This peace we all long
Although I can’t see it from here -
I think, peace just may be near.
