No Control

The more I try to force it,

I realize how little control I have

and I’m overwhelmed with fear.


It’s so hard for me

to just it happen naturally,

let the dominoes fall as they will

without influencing them.


I can’t imagine not organizing

every single detail of my life;

I can never be spontaneous.


Every day scheduled to the second

keeps my thoughts at peace,

helps me sleep at night.


I wish for once

I could just let things be.
