So much

So much

coming at you

you can’t control

within our own

sunsets

let it blow

A W A Y

like the wind

it is always what it is

just that

no less

no more

and does what it does

blowing leaves on the

ground

cooling you down

ruffling your hair

on its own terms

in its own time

at its own

unpredictable

pace

when you think

about it

nothing

belongs to us

clenched in our

fists

as hard

as we will

it

remains

never ours

to keep

under lock and key

the harder you hold on

the more it slips

away

from your iron

grasp

yet

we have the air

the sun

moon

trees

grass

birds

these are given

freely

they belong

to the earth

so much

rests not

in our

power

the wise

know

this

that

there are so many things

they don’t know

the mysteries

stay mysteries

and are never revealed

to anyone

the unknown

stays

faceless

we wonder

through the years

and speculate

living our lives

out full measure

we know that

what you sow

you reap

nothing we possess

not even our own

soul

belongs to us

it was also

given

take it slow

to wherever your

travels take

Y O U

go with what you know

grow from all your woe

sometimes it’s this

that you may have to wait

for what’s due

so much

is

the

overwhelming

bliss

patience

in endurance

a

must not

miss

we have searched

and have found

our

uncertain

niche

now

it’s time

to

rest

a while

upon

a

foundation

of

unanswered

questions
