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!
