Just the way it is

The future is unknown

meaning to say that it remains a mystery

and that is sometimes good

in fact very good

imagine knowing everything beforehand

what would happen if that were to be so

imagine knowing when you would leave this earth

and that is putting it kindly

and how long must the knowledge be made known

all that mystery would be absent

what fun is there if we really knew

would that not mean that our plans

can really get upset

making plans may no longer be necessary

oh this will never do

I still think I like it now

as it is

I may not know but at least

I can remain untouched

and I can simply trust our Lord

and that is really all I need
