Relax. Let God do my seeing, my knowing

              of what crosses my path. And such crosses there are, or could be!

Relax. Surrender my right and my need to be right (or wrong) –

              of doing things my way, fretting, for such paths are long.

Relax. Just be, and see – thru God’s eyes, no longer my own.

Behold God’s creating – sensing God’s peace.

Relax. Lay down the burden of self-invention, -maintenance, –defense.

Peace will surround, be found, descend, when we come to the end

              of writing our own stolen stories, contrived to impress – who? –

              and give back God’s pen!
