Wheels On The Road

Wheels on the road to redemption
“Look where you want to go,” they say
But I can’t see past all this blinding shit
It bulldozes through my wall of illusion
Forcing me to connect in the midst of escape

It’s a lonely path to an elusive reward
But I must persevere through the raging tears
Discarding the denial and embracing the truth
Shedding the hate for a cleaner skin

Wheels on the road to emancipation
Driving to the light while chained to guilt
A loosening grip as I take the wheel
And ride on through the pelting storm
