Charged Momentum


I drive behind the bus

There they sit

Shoulder to shoulder, on their way

I watch enthralled

Pondering the pain and glory arising in the teenage soul

So much potential, emotions, anticipations, aspirations

Responsibilities become real, now

A course is set or unset

As feet pound turf

Wonders of so much more

Yet, uncertainty thriving

As anchors are tossed into fray

In hopes of securing a state

That makes sense, makes money, sees a forward to reach

All wrapped up under weighted gear

And the grunts of charged momentum

Thrusting out the door

As my car passes

And their Game begins.
