Two Minutes

Two minutes, that’s an eternity!
 
My hands quiver at the steering wheel
 
While stopped at a red traffic light
 
Raring to fly in my automobile…
 
Wanting to leave the present behind
 
And the past that's been cruel and unreal!
 
But I know a bright future beckons
 
Waiting for me to unravel and reveal!

This is the fifth in my series of poems about the past...
