No Destination

We kept on going, no destination.

All we felt was the speed limit increasing,
25MPH 35MPH 45MPH 55MPH
We kept on going, no destination.
Miles after miles of endless chatter,
Endless hope of forgetting,
Many stops here and there,
There and here.

We kept on going, no destination.
All we could hear was the crinkling of bag of chips,
The slurping of the last drop of soda pop,
We just had to have.

We kept on going, no destination.
The endless road games,
The meaningful chatter of our parents in the front seats.

We kept on going, no destination.
What is the point?
Silence.

We kept on going, no destination.
Where are we going?
Silence.

We kept on going, no destination.
It was for the hope to forget,
The hope that we wouldn’t notice the loss.

We kept on going no destination.
Notice the absence of one.
The Brave one,
The kind one,
The honest one.

We kept on going, no destination.
Memories fading,
No hope lingered,
There was nothing to hope for.

We kept on going, no destination.
