The Battle of Accepting Our Limits

Awake Again

Awake again,
knowledge of another day
like the previous,
authored by the pen of Another.
My own narrative
unknown to me
before the chapters unfold.
Things to be faced
I face them.
Dreams come
of prophetic vision,
more power,
greater control.
In a world broken
with people flawed,
in the middle
of daily mystery
where questions multiply
and answers flee,
it is a constant battle
to accept
your limits.
