Life is Uncontrollable

At some point on the long journey
We have to face the facts
Life is uncontrollable
That one single truth
Sends terror into the ego self
Who finds it unacceptable
But there it is
No matter how we try and fix it
Over power it, rationalize it
Scream at it or deny it
It is still uncontrollable

Wisdom says
Knowing that and desiring freedom
I choose to try and accept
That my attempts are futile
And I can either carry that truth
With resignation
And stay stuck in the battle
Or carry that truth
With the deepest acceptance
And surrender it all
To the natural intelligence
Inside everything.
