The unwritten knowing
I want to write a poem about control
When you think you are in control
That is when you lose control
Life has the opposite effects
When you think you have it
is when you don't
It will be pulled from under you
Because there is only one Ruler
Anything than that
will be knocked down
And leave to pieces
You sure don't want to be the one to pick up the pieces, do you?
So don't force me or anyone to make the executive decision
Either knowingly or unknowingly
Of assuring that the Almighty always has the strictest control
Which is the only control
Why do you think we change?
Why do you think there is disorder
To make sure that we don't rule
To make sure that we know
who is the Ruler of us all
So do you think you have control?
