All hear that word so many times

Life and driving are so alike

Sometimes you are in charge at the wheel

And sometimes your just a passenger

Who must sit right and wait for the outcomes

Luck drives us so often that we often think it’s us at the wheel 

But sometimes we are in charge

We know what we’re doing

And we think through and understand our actions and choices

When you go fast with your head down

In life or at the wheel

Everything is a blur

Windows always make everything outside slightly tinted and artificial 

But when you roll down your mind barrier and lies told to you

You see the truth

And refreshing air gushes to your face

Making you feel good

And there's nothing you can’t ace

There are always turns in both

You must know, estimate, or decide

Which one will take you to your goal or destination

When on the road

Cars surround you

Some faster and others slower then you

Falling behind or speeding ahead

When in life

People come and go

To and fro 

Some in your life stay low

While others do much more then say hello

On certain streets you are alone

During certain times in your life

You seem alone 

And feel farlone

And in both

You eventually reach your destination

Although in life you usually get out with a bit more hesitation.

I love this comparison to life and driving! It's true that, like car rides, unexpected things can happen. It might force us to either take the wheel or move to the passenger seat. Great poem!

Thank you!
I was driving and thinking about life, so I decided to intertwine both in writing :)
