In Her New Tomorrow

As she winds around the bend in the road,
she feels herself blending in with
the wild flowers, the vivid colors,
and the distress in the oncoming sunset
in some awkward relationship.
Her mind is far from the lonely road she is on right now,
back to where her thoughts grew clouded
with every bruise that colored her skin.
Her SUV disappearing in dust
down the deserted road,
she finds peace in watching the small and seemingly forgotten towns
falling far behind her.
She'll need to stop soon for her aching eyes and wandering soul,
but then she will have to let the troubles
of yesterday catch up with her
in tomorrow.
