Chasing the headlight you drive the car
With single-minded determination to the destination.
You are in a hurry. Hurry!
There’s a whole world to be conquered.
The highway is as alluring as the holy grail.
Highway is a mark of development.
Development is the key to happiness.
In the undeveloped underbrush
In the darkness on either side
Lie mysteries sighing mantras of bliss
Fairies and dryads beckon
Rivers and mountains sing songs of beatitude
Beside the highway
Highways are full of light.
The world stands bathed in brilliance.
I embrace the magic of darkness
Away, away from the highway
Far away from the brilliance of your lights.
