I have done it I have conquered my fear
A fear that has gripped me this past year
While travelling down south it was always the same
We would come upon a bridge that I was never game
To drive across as it was narrow and long
And we would stop and switch drivers knowing this was wrong
But I just couldn’t do it, it scared me so
Sweaty palms, heart racing, silly I know
Then one day I decided it had to be
I had to take control of the fear in me
So off I drive with the bridge in sight
And I try to calm my heart rate with all my might
Hands gripping the wheel, sweat on my face
My husband saying gently, just keep a nice pace
I’m half way across there’s a truck coming my way
I want to close my eyes and silently pray
But I take a deep breath with eyes on the road
And shut out the truck with its long load
The end of the bridge is here and I’ve done it at last
This bridge will haunt me no more its now in the past
Why did this bridge terrify so?
The answer to that is I truly don’t know.
