They Say It Is Karma

A beautiful day,

Driving along

A busy highway

Humming a song.

 

A feeling of

Freedom

Inside.

 

Then out of the blue

Under a glistening sun,

An image

Appeared

In my mind.

Of someone, quite sadly

I hated,

And at one time berated,

A memory

From many moments ago.

 

“Where did that come from?”

I asked, rhetorically,

Only,

I should have known,

 

It came out of nowhere

Straight into my gut,

And I can’t speed away

The exit is shut.

 

And now I’m there,

My hands on the wheel,

A negative memory

Trying to steal,

The happiness I knew

Before out of the blue,

Thought came to take it away.

 

So I drive along.

Whipping myself with this dark

Menacing memory,

Of something forgotten,

Someone I knew

Eons ago.

I obsess and twist and toss it around

And watch it grow.

 

I look at the clouds

Up above and I say,

A little prayer,

Please take it away.

But still it persists

As it turns

And it twists

And it stays with me for the rest

Of the day.
