Still Driving My Jalopy (poem by me)

It seems like falling apart or yielding would be so easy,

But I’ve been driving down this road so long,
That letting go or slowing down feels completely wrong.

So when it seems like I’m being admirably strong,
Know that I envy you who admits your humbling fears,
Even when you float by in a trail of self-made tears.

Show me proof that God somehow steers,
If I take my hands off the wheel of this lemon,
And relinquish muzzled pain and poisonous venom.

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. —Jeremiah 29:11
