When At Odds With The Universe - Poem by Paulo Acosta

When at odds with the Universe,
Ranting and raving for better or for worse,
When all is said and done,
Sadness and Anger yet ungone,
Oft comes an embracing Silence,
Some kind of kindly Presence,
A sense of Peace, of Incarnate Good,
The Essence of an Inscrutable God.
