check engine light

at this stage in my life
I wish I did not worry
about my 2010 Dodge Journey
that I am still making payments on

and this late in my life
I wish I did not hurry
but could savor the time with my kids
who now have cars to call their own

and there is a place in my life
where everything is crystal clear
children laughing in the back seat
as we travel on this journey
