Kind Of A Relief

It’s kind of a relief
To let go of thinking
I could know all I wanted
If I tried hard enough
Looked in the right places
Talked to the right people

To have my searching result
In the peaceful conclusion that
My time is much better spent
Learning to live with the unknown
Than trying to make the unknown known
So I can live with it

Humbling
In the calmest kind of way
To know that

The only thing I know
About the future
Is that it will unfold in its own sweet time

The only thing I know
About pain
Is that it has to run its course

The only thing I know
About heaven
Is that it will be better than here

The only thing I know
About when things are complicated
Is that no choice feels exactly right

The only thing I know
About people
Is that their actions can’t be predicted

The only thing I know
About family
Is that they belong to me

The only thing I know
About God
Is that God can’t be fully known

The only thing I know
About me
Is that my intentions are good

And despite all I don’t know
I am most me
When I don’t fight the unknown

When I accept that although
I can’t know it all
I can still live
Intentionally, softly, courageously  
In this world
