poem challenge: Freedom

Car ride

Today's car ride was different.
Today wasn't like any other day.
Today was a day I will never forget.
No parents.
No rules.

Maybe it was because we were in the car with teenage girls.
Maybe it was because everyone was having a great day.
Or maybe it was because I was in the car with people I had so much in common with that we just worked!

As we drove down the highway with the radio blasting,
screaming every word to every verse,
we watched people turn and stare at us as we passed.

It was such an amazing feeling!
Feeling Free.
Feeling Older.
Feeling Liked.

I didn't want that car ride to end.
I wanted there to be more traffic.
I wanted to stay in the car with them FOREVER!
