Let go of the reins, the horse it knows better
Stop yanking and cranking, to all you go getters
You are the rider, with barely control
Force if you will, but you’ll pay the toll
Let go of the rudder, the ship knows its way
I know, that takes trust, life’s lesson at bay
“Trust in the sea, that tumultuous pest?”
Here’s where the problem starts, and should rest
Control’s an illusion that’s determined to fail
Though our programming tells a so different tale
We try and we push in persistent illusion
For what, may I ask? This world of confusion?
We follow on, in control’s paradigm
A reaction rehearsed, and something to mime
Look only to nature, its natural flow
Some adaption perhaps, its rhythm to know
But don’t force the ship, the horse, or the life
There are currents to follow and allow without strife
“Relinquish control? It must do what I tell!”
That my dear friend is the voice out of hell.
