The Red Car

By Aidan Sheeran-Hahnel, age 11, Oregon


I am on the floor of my basement, a content five-year-old who has just had dinner;
I am rolling a red car across the floor, listening to the wheels clink as they hit the grooves in the tile floor.
I am imagining driving that car, racing across the world, seeing unimaginable wonders;
I am pressing my cheek against those cool tiles, relaxing, enjoying the tingle in my skin.
When I look to my right, I see the garage door, where once I go, I shall never return;
To my left, I can catch a glimpse of my comfortable couch and my bathroom door.
Forward is my future:
All around me, I am home.
