Poetry evokes the musings of life.
Today’s prompt for Intro to Poetry is journey. As an extra feature, include a simile.

was like a long ride in a carton
from FedEx delivery service

destroyed any freedom and real voice
in this wicked old sham of a marriage
without a good car–or a carriage!

flew past as a leaf in September.
No choices to life are allowed me;
his close-minded stubbornness stymie
all chance at examining courses
of action, as though they were horses
