Driving Through My Thoughts

On the open road
Driving through my thoughts
Slowly letting them unfold
Thinking of my gain and loss.

Yesterday I gained hope
Day before I had less
Though still a long road
Feel joy in a little success.

That which ties us down
Can also set us free
Help us find solid ground
We might not otherwise see.

What is it we value?
What do we really need?
If one can answer both
Then I believe one freed.
