Wheels are turning; rolling through the puddles,
As I breathe in deep and let it go just as desperately.
The music vibrates through the drums of my ears:
Play; Repeat - Words I will never understand.
The lights, like gems, are sprawled out onto the ground.
Sparkling and coveted reds and greens are beaming,
Showing off a fortune that could never be fully grasped.
My hands grip the steering wheel - my foot hits the pedal,
How I wish for a heart that would know how to settle.
For now the tears of rain beat down from my dark skies,
As I breathe in deep, and let it go just as desperately.

This was absolutely amazing.
Breathe is not the righ title, because i couldn't after i read this.
As teenagers, or any age really. We always find those moments were we are full of rage, giving us the best opputunity's to write something amazing.
Great Job.
I also agree with your comment on your poem.
Move on, keep growing from everything we go through.
