SPOILED BRATS

Who's driving this car!

---

Going down the emotional road

no one at the wheel

Not a good deal

---

Looking back and wishing I could

grab control

Take us where we want to go

---

Instead two children 

fighting in the back seat

When will we get there!

we scream

---

No grown up around

Minds confused

Tempers real

Tires squeal 

---

Going too fast

want to open the door

and jump out

---

But my heart is there

wish I didn't care

tension in my body

and in the air

---

No seat belts to defend us

nothing to grip on to

---

The pavement never ending

confused hurt feelings sending

me to a place I  do not want to go

---

Help me!

I scream

no one to hear me...

---

I want to let go

but no

I hang on like a water skier who's lost her board

lids flapping in the lake

Release your hold!

they all yell

---

Easier said than done

---

Is it a dead end street

no hope for us to complete

---

Will we take this to our graves

Broken hearted and alone

----

Will we ever graduate 

from kindergarten

Or be spoiled little brats

forever...
