Purpose

Sitting in the sun,
lonely and alone.
Waiting for the moment,
to finally be put to use.
I never sleep,
just sit idly by.

Here they come now,
be careful how you handle me.
Mum is smiling,
Dad is scowling.
Kids are happy,
we are ready to go.

Now I am moving,
my wheels are spinning.
I can feel the breeze,
it is cooling my parts.
Dad is giving me gas,
this is why I am here!

Lockdown

Time on my hands, too much, too much
No focus, no thoughts, only emptiness
Organisation is needed, I know it such
I need more energy, not laziness

There is a long road ahead
I have companions for this trip
It can't be filled with dread
I need to balance not slip
