Explain again the rules to me
Just how we thought this all would be
We put it down so carefully
Is this the world we thought we’d see
What made our expectations change
What forced our plans to rearrange
What is the hope in an exchange
What point did things become this strange
Or maybe this was meant to be
Perhaps it’s us who cannot see
Enjoy our world more carefully
Your whispers too call out to me

Yes, we can make our plans, but the reality is the plans He has for us are so much better ...
Deb Hirt on August 28, 2016:
I cannot think of anything more true.
Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on August 13, 2016:
Lovely poetry. Enjoyed.
Michael-Milec on August 11, 2016:
Oh, yes brother.
We marvel, wondering
seeking and asking
till we rest in His perfect will.
Bronwen Scott-Branagan from Victoria, Australia on August 11, 2016:
I really like this one, there's only one thing missing - the One whose plans for us are perfect.
Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on August 10, 2016:
In fact the plans are made by ' him' . We only execute them.
Thank you for sharing!
