as I accelerated to a speed no normal human would be comfortable with,
it was, in many ways, a release, a swan song.
scenery blurred into lines of color
as I drove faster and played chicken with the Reaper.
do your best to add me to your menagerie.
I have trekked to the edge more times worth remembering
and it all comes back to beating the odds,
coming out as a warrior,
and driving on.
