The High Anxiety Drive- a poem

Updated on June 11, 2015

You took it upon yourself

To hold the weight of the world

You volunteered to drive long distance

When you know that causes you anxiety

Then another friend came upon board

So you not only had to drive but you had two guests

Oh what a mess!

Wouldn't it be much more peaceful with one???

This one, he talks and talks...

and it's not so bad but when you drive...you're like ADD...

You can't seem to concentrate....with TALKING.....

so you go CrAzY...trying to block out his YAKING

Oh gee Oh gee Oh gee

What to do? What to do?

Will we make it back safely with the brake pedal covered by your shoe?

Or what to do?

Do i say a prayer

While driving...

I'm getting nervous!

Oh no!

I feel uncouth..uncomfortable to say the least

Their lives are in my hands....and yet I'm in a state of anxiety!

I am nervous because I'm exhausted and yet I've got a long ways to go

WElll.......

The unhappy memorial was OKay.....

It was Okay....

they're not happy things to go to...are they--no

But we made it through...it's over now...for me anyhow....

So.....let's move on...but--

the CAFFEINE! It's still in my system!

And I TOLD you I shouldn't drink any but you said

Just have one cup!

And it turned into about 2-3

And now...I'm not happy!

It made me irritable that caffeine

Oh what a day

And all over being a passive woman

when I could have said, "No I won't go."
