Day 9, June 2016, #BornWithWings Writing Challenge - Control

Day 9, June 2016, 30-day #‎bornwithwings‬ writing challenge. Inspired by this excerpt of a poem by Rumi: "You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don't. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly."


Control.

Oh boy, that's a doozy.

There is so much to say about this one,

But for tonight,

I relinquish to my tired mind and body,

And succumb to my bed.

And I'm glad there isn't a universal remote for life.

That would be way too easy.

I don't have to push a button and serendipity happens all the time.

Which reminds me that I'm not in control of everything.

And more and more I'm okay with that.

I like passing the reins.

Sharing the burden of what's next.

I enjoy when someone else plans the day. Once in a while.

That saying leap and the net will appear is awesome.

I will have simply planned a fabulous after party at the bottom of the cliff.

In the immortal words of Janet Jackson:

Got my own mind
I wanna make my own decisions
When it has to do with my life, my life
I wanna be the one in control
