Negotiating Curves

 

some of us are confident

start to accelerate

 

others slow down 

cautiously pumping brakes

 

one or two stop 

pull over for some head 

 

all feel anxiety 

mixed with excitement 

 

negotiating curves

everything works 

 

why does mature 

mean mean and serious

 

each of us take it 

some with a touch of grace

 

it comes with your name

looks a bit like your face

 

few of us fake it 

we’ll have another chance

 

as the circle gets tighter

we might not spin again

 

negotiating curves

with two hands 

 

leaning in with the swerve

dividing miliseconds 

 

negotiating curves

from scary to worse 

 

now you wanna drive

life’s full of lessons
