Window and Wall

Gas Station Ruins, Route 66, Mojave Desert, California, United States of America
You throw yourself at life
With abandon
Maybe you hit the wall
Again and again
Leaving a bit of yourself behind
Every time

But every time
You notice the window
The open space beyond it
The hopeful road
Leading somewhere promising

So you back up
Maybe a little further this time
To get a better run

Because some people might be aiming
For the window
But you?
You’re taking down the fucking wall

Route 66
