Comrades Of The Road


I feel a certain kindred
with the drivers of the land.
I think of all the many pressing
strains we have to stand.

For driving is a function
where you're always looking twice,
and glancing in your side-mount
and your rear-view mirrors thrice.

But sometimes when I'm driving,
and the car is floating smooth,
and the other drivers pass me,
I catch a certain mood.

I feel a certain kindred
with the drivers of the land.
We all are flowing smoothly
and the feeling is so grand.

    I never thought of driving in such a good way. Maybe there would be less accidents
    if we thought this way. Next time i will smile as I pass by a comrade of the road.
    very inspiring Sandi. (Report) Reply
