You think God has left you, that perhaps
you’ve outgrown Him –
we all want to be gods now, in control of the things
that spin around us.
But look how fast they spin, the chaos of modernity –
you realize we need God more than ever
to let go of this tight grip and find silence amid the noise
and say His name, admit we don’t know
and never will
that there are mysteries that’ll always be hidden –
that’s a surrender that brings a moment of peace
even in a lifetime of sorrow.
