"For who by taking thought, can add an inch?"
The Bible asks this timeless cosmic clue
reminding men, that wishes will not clinch
their hopes and prayers, nor make their dreams come true.
By any turn of mind, events and facts
are unaffectable. "All apples fall,"
as Newton said, "and natural Earthly acts,
are ruled by laws beyond the reach of All."

"Life on life's terms," has now become my goal.
If God exists, acceptance of His will
without critique, should justify my soul.
If not, whatever's meant to be will still
pack up old Santa's sack with toys to teach
illusion's end, that light may come to each.
