Control - Poem by Ryan Lee Morris

I have none,
So it's time to let it go.
It makes life unmanageable,
More than you know.

People are hurtful,
Their opinions cause pain.
Making them something they're not.
Will drive you insane.

So just let things be,
Let them lie where they may.
Change just what you can.
And live day to day.

You may disagree,
With what others do think.
But trying to change them,
Brings you to the brink.

Helping's not changing,
But learning to serve,
Makes others rethink things,
And throws them a curve.

They may look at things different.
Or still maybe the same.
They will make their mistakes,
And have themselves to blame.

So please heed this advise.
This advise that I give.
It may not make things better.
But you'll learn how to live.

To live life on life's terms,
Leave the past in the past.
Life life for today,
Cause it goes by so fast.
