Bus Ride I Used to Do


(At times when I am mad or upset I remember the old times)

I used to take a ride bound to nowhere
Enjoy every moment of joy and fear
Silent the whole time pretending I know
So people won't find out I've nowhere to go

I do that on days when I am most mad
Or days when things and people are sad
Friends even music are nowhere to be found
And I feel so alone I'd rather be gone

I get hold of myself after doing all that
I get tough I get strong it's myself that I pat
And I can't thank enough my nobound-ride
Because of it I gather my vanishing pride.

    I enjoy long bus rides as well, they're so... Liberating, and peaceful. It is good that you have somewhere in your head to go, something to remember, when you need it the most. Beautiful poetry. (Report) Reply
