My plea

My plea to you that
will not be heard is
let life flow as a
beautiful stream that
goes where it will,
and cannot be tamed,
and leave behind
the desire to control
your little ideal world,
a desire that only leads,
in the end, to anxiety.

Dip, instead, in the stream
and feel its energy and
its force and let it take
you body whole to where
the stream grows larger
and meets the sea.
