Driving

How frail is humanity! How short is life, how full of trouble! (Job 14:1; NLT).

 

Lord,
Whenever I drive
My car,
Please help me
To remain aware

That I’m only
A thin-skinned bag
Of blood,
And bone,
And brain,

Propelling half a ton
Of glass,
And steel,
And unburnt fuel
At speed,

Amongst
My fellow travellers!
