It Is He Who Is Allowing This To Be(written2-10-04)

It is not I,
but that which you see

and my desire is to do only what He allows me to-

not my will
nor anyone elses will

as I am struggling with patience to be still

and just as He allows the waves to vehemently march upon the shores
then peacefully retreat into the seas-
likewise-it is He who is also allowing this to be
