Top Down This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   I turn the ignition

And the car comes alive.

I can see a vision.

I see myself driving down the highway.

Going to anywhere I please.

Not caring whether to go or stay.

I can feel the wind blowing through my hair,

With the top down

Going to God knows where.

I can see the people staring

As I drive in my fire-red convertible,

Thinking I'm daring.

I can go wherever there are roads.

Do whatever I please.

Unfortunately my car doesn't float.

If it could there would be no stopping me.

I could see the world

By just grabbing the key.

There would be nothing my parents could say

To keep me from my destination.

Now if only I could leave the driveway!
