Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
Sex before marriage is wrong? Would you buy a car without test driving it?
Living our life is much like driving a car
as it doesn't matter where we want to go
because we are not bound to get very far
if operating that thing is what we don't know.
So many of us press on both gas and brake
wanting so badly to get from here to there
but stress of it is more than we can take
so we just end up with a quiet despair.
When in relationship we forget it's a two-way-street
so we place ourselves at the end of receiving line
expecting to be made happy and acting all beat
not much in mood to respect that "yield" sign.
If it was not for conscience that hidden cop
who knows what offences we would make
drive over limit, fail to slow down and stop
there wouldn't be rule we wouldn't break.
Our passengers in life -- often giving us stress
as we're stuck with them in that close space
boiling down to sharing the same address
it can make of life-story a shrink's case.
Well, that's why you won't see me in a fast lane
while being parked means my daily meditation
that's how I'm trying to keep my driving sane
always insisting on best fuel at gas station.
To keep my car rust-free took some knowing
but more important is how I keep it all inside
a public transportation isn't my way of going
'cause I truly don't like being taken for a ride.
