Imagine

 

I want to be a formula one driver

I want to go fast in a car

Through the day and night

Race on a track

Faster than Daniel Riccardo

Go hypersonic

Blast

Like a rocket

 

I want to rush like the wind

On a motorbike

Tilting very low

Knee almost touching the ground

Wearing a white helmet

Then rearing up like an angry horse

Roar

Like a lion

 

I want to go as fast as the speed of light

In a rocket

Shooting up high

Soaring in the sky

Rushing past the solar system

Boom

Like the Big Bang

 

What if you could

Run faster than the speed of sound?

You could make a lot of money off that

  1. This poem is Zachary’s response to Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem ‘The Boy’. The idea for the poem came from my reading of the book “Rose, Where Did You Get That Red?” by Kenneth Koch
