My Car


I was on a journey

In my own car


Until I hitched a ride

In someone else's


Then I became a passenger

And a backseat driver


On a journey for others

And towards their destination

One day the ride was over

And I was off the car


To realize that my car

Was left way behind


I traced my steps back

And found my car again


Although other cars went ahead

My car was still left behind


I was traveling towards

Someone else's destination


And I never reached my own

Since I wasn't in control


Now I'm back in my car

And now I'm in control


I know my own destination

And only I'll get there myself in


My car
