Manage The Wind

By Steve Cavin

Why do you try

To mangage the wind?

To steer the stars,

And make the trees bend?

Wind finds its way

Without your command.

It doesn't matter

What you have planned.


Why do you try

To cover the earth?

To pave or control,

The place of your birth?.

The earth is below

Everything you see.

Every man-made thing,

Every rock and tree.


Why do you try

To move the waters?

To drain the rivers,

The rain man's daughters?

Diverting the stream

That runs to the sea.

Unwilling to simply

Let things be.


Why do you try

To conquer time?

To last forever,

Or stop on a dime?

Events will not follow,

What a man expects.

Do you control

What happens next?
