Wally West’s Stream of Consciousness

The engine purrs into my bones seeping into my skin filling my veins with gasoline adrenaline and fumes all telling me that this is a bad idea but it’s better than thinking of a good idea while sitting still and doing nothing pen flicking in your wrist I accelerate too fast to soon Wally you’re moving too fast too soon flicking the wheel in a pendulum turn I never learn never back down from a fight try to do what’s right this is my second chance second life to be someone that puts other people first no more slipping on wet pavements no more burnt out tires the radio keeps playing the same old songs and I am tired of listening to them cut to the chase back in the days I would be the one running sirens blasted the music I had on repeat out on the streets nothing to gain life was a game my mother was the price I paid for gambling too much— mom, I’m sorry. I love you and I want you to be proud Central City needs my help take my ego out of my head take my pride out of my chest make me a better man I want to be better elevate me to a higher plane only this speed is keeping me sane keeping me at my best engines of motivation this is where my drive comes from no time to rest no one ever asks The Flash why he saves people they just know the same way he knows the same way I know it’s what I need to do the city is a minefield of criminals and thugs let me work through this grid follow the lights trace the lines fight the good fight into the black night I hear the call of a siren luring me in this is a bad idea zooming in at two hundred miles an hour but it’s better than thinking of a good idea while sitting still pen flicking in your wrist
