Illusion of Control

Like the power of
the Wizard of Oz
control is an illusion

Just when I think
I know how things will go
I’m thrown into a
state of confusion

The illusion fades
into oblivion and then

And then what?
I don’t know

I’m not the one with
my hands on the wheel
my foot on the gas pedal

I’m just along for the ride
in this thing called life

When I press the imaginary
brake pedal on the passenger side
nothing happens

And the One in control smiles
bids me trust His driving

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.
