when i am upset
when i have thoughts
when i am filled with anger
i like to drive.

when i am behind the wheel
i am in control -
i control the speed,
i control which way i want to turn,
i control my destination
i am in complete control.

in life
i am behind the wheel
metaphorically speaking
but it's like driving blindfolded
with a brick for a foot
and no arms.

i can't control where i go
i can't control my destination
i can't control my speed

i can't control my emotions
i can't control how fast they come on
i can't control who comes in and out of my life
and that scares the **** out of me.

so,
at least when i am behind the wheel of a car,
i am in
complete
control.
