Back Seat Driver

Stay in the back seat, Fear.
I know you will always travel with me
But stop trying to grab the wheel.

Strap yourself in right now,
Buckle yourself tightly up.
Stop your incessant chatter
Distracting me at every turn.
Hush yourself down.

Stay in that back seat, Fear.
Give me space to hear myself think.
Leave me alone to see
The road just ahead.
Let me find my own way home.
