Behind this steering wheel I feel amazing.
I am in control as the music is blazing.
The trees and homes are a blur as I increase my speed.
I travel these roads as if I have been freed!
I was trapped and restrained in the passenger seat.
But, now I choose the destination and the street
I travel, taking my time or whizzing along
Jamming to my song.
I fill my tank with gas and plan my route.
I put on my shades and begin to shout
Along to the radio and feel so free!
Nobody is riding here with me.
This freedom and exhilaration soon end.
Up ahead I see the bend.
The road begins to Curve!
I turn the wheel and begin to swerve…
I wanted to be in the driver’s seat
But, I think ths is a very dangerous feat.
This freedom is not so free.
Yet, these obstacles are strengthening me.
I have become an expert at applying the brakes.
I am doing whatever it takes.
I turn to the left and again to the right.
I am accelearating with all my might!
I drive this vessel with all that I am .
Cruising these lanes, not giving a damn;
Not letting the fear become my master’
I just shift and begin to go faster!
I don’t glance to see what is behind,
That is a gone and different time.
I am on the right course and heading the right way,
I just keep my eyes on the road and pray!
