Go ahead, kid. Take your long gone
hard drawn conclusions onto the road
and see just where it leads.
Surprises will come fewer & farther between
but seeing them coming will not prevent
the detonation of neural synapses, no matter
how prepared you believe yourself to be.
They’re gonna get you.
Right and wrong will stare you in the face
but circumstances of time and place
and necessities of surviving the race
will dictate how moral you can afford to be.
You can pray for guidance but you’ll rarely see
the kind of roadsigns you really need.
Pray for wisdom.
Pray for strength.
Pray for forgiveness.
