Speed Bump

She’s always been there to slow me down

My speed bump

When I was on a path that would destroy me

She showed up

I slowed down to get to know her

Until an unforeseen crossroad

Caused us to part

Open road lay before me again

And I mashed that gas pedal

All the way to the floor

I could barely make shapes

As objects zoomed by my windows

Gone was I again

But again she came to my aid

My speed bump

Always there in the nick of time

To save me from myself

When things start to go crazy

When things are moving to fast

My thoughts

My memories

I call her


Everything. Slows. Down.

Then it hits me

My moment of clarity

Saved again

By my spe3d bump
