Tending The Soul

Nerves frayed
Frazzled being
Face wrinkled
In worry lines
Life is an education
The biggest classroom
Learning to release
White-knuckled control
That we never had
Fooled ourselves
Of the possibility
All that we can do
Is sweep our own porch
Tend our own garden
Water our own soul
And stop our fight
Against the Universe
Resistance futile
From the best for us
