Ode to a solo bicycle ride

 

If they could see me now
Wheeling free
Feeling the cool breeze tingling my rosy cheeks

The strength of the human spirit realized.
I find myself back in another time
Another reality where
“No” reverberated at every turn,
Be happy being comfortable
It’s all you can hope for
Medicated numbness

Those crushing words
Trying to bury me alive.
Few dared to dream with me
But dream I would
For moments just like this

Whizzing along taking it all in
Sensory overload
Cars flying by
People sauntering with pets in tow
Nervous excitement

I have not settled for comfortable existence
I am fully alive
In this moment
Making memories
With every turn of the wheel
