THEN IT'S OVER
(8/5/18)

we work

we work

we work

then our
"free" time
is eaten alive
by the endless
extraneous tasks
required
just to survive
in this modern
world

no wonder
so many dance
the delicate line
of surrender

of insanity

acceptance
is the key

when we
embrace
our labor

affirm
the myriad
of minor
matters

as means
to our deliverance
from these
selfsame
worldly affairs

then
we are able
to attain
moments
of clarity

of peace

of understanding
concerning our place
in the universe

don't worry

our travails
upon this planet
will end

all too
soon

without
any effort
upon our part
whatsoever

but we
might as well
end them

every
day

as much
as possible

on God's
terms
