The Gas Pedal

She's drive a car that doesn't have brakes. 
Dangerous, one might think, but really, it isn't.
The road she's on has no stop signs, no red lights, 
no places to turn around.
She's able to ease up off the gas,
to slow down and take in the scenery.
But, the only way to stop would be to take her foot off the pedal.
She's never tried this approach, and she's afraid if she does,
the car may never start again.
She'd be stranded, with no directions home.
Besides, there's no need to stop, no need to reach for that brake
that isn't there.
There's far too much to see, 
too many places to go.
