Kylie at the Wheel

I sit nervously,
not because of danger,
but because of fear
of anticlimax.
Failure has real consequences,
both physical and emotional.
Crashing may mean broken bits -
but the smashed confidence
cashes in far more chips.

For the car can be repaired,
it could be a bonding project,
but how do I JB Weld back together
the mound of confidence
mortared and chiseled -
hewn through years of trust?
