Inspirational SLAM POETRY:

"Life's like a road that you travel on
When there's one day here and the next day gone
Sometimes you bend, sometimes you stand
Sometimes you turn your back to the wind"

- Tom Cochrane, LIFE IS A HIGHWAY

We are all cars and the open road is our journey in life
Through the laughter and tears, the sweat and strife
Just know: It's your car, your rules
So don't listen to those fear-mongering fools
who misguide  
The backseat drivers who tell you to slow down 
Who suffocate your rising flame to keep you in the "right lane"
They just want to help but does anyone really know you?
Does anybody really know what you need?

A driver's manual can keep your automobile in tip-top shape
But it will not tell you where to go, which turn to take
Drive somewhere new. Take the scenic route.
Go far! 
It's your car...
YOU drive YOU thrive
And if it gets dark? Turn on your headlights
If it turns black? Switch on your brights.  
Change the radio station and turn it way up. 
Ride the music, feel the sensation 
But you must not sit idle, get in the groove
Find your support, get off your ass, and move
So long as there's traction under your tires they will carry you where you choose
You're responsible for your happiness, to get out of the gloom
But like burning rubber on hot asphalt, You may have to ZOOM...

Find excitement! Feel your engine roar with life
Hear it purr like a prowling leopard 
Let it loose. Throw open the cage with all your might
Drive Dammit Drive!
Feel the thrill of your movement. The rubber on the road. 
Roll down the windows and let the wind blow through your hair
Maybe you'll jolt at the honk of a horn. Should you care?
They want your attention. We all want attention.
Fate? Hate? Maybe it's just bottled up aggression...
More important than petrol are the people that surround you
Like fuel for your car, they will drive you 
But you can go forward or backward.
It's your trip, What would you do?
If you keep looking in the rear-view mirror you'll miss what's in front of you    
So think forward. Write your own map. Get a clue.
Create your own destiny, Make your own decision!
Or be driven...
