Control the uncontrollable

Sunday 19th February 

Anxiety grips with its icy hand
Trying to control what can't be planned
Mind races with a thousand fears
Trying to hold back the tears

I'm drowning in a sea of doubt
And those silent voices scream and shout
The waves come in, ebb out again
My efforts to stop them, all in vain

I know I must let go of this need
To control what's beyond my reach, take heed
I must learn to trust in the flow of life
Let go of the need to control the strife

Take a deep breath, closing my eyes
Face turned to the ever-changing skies
Shake off the need to control the uncontrollable
Maybe life would be so much more approachable

Love you so much
Treasured sons
