Of All Those Things

Those things that happen
Which we do not understand
Those things that blind us
And that taste so bitter

Those things that are the acts
Of a lifelong play with feelings
A play with God rolling dice
A life cycling through bad and worse
And bad and good

Of all those things
Which seem so random
Of which neither we
Nor they
Nor you
Nor I
Extend control of

Of all those things
One thing we seek
Just one
One great thing
Peace.
