I am in control of my life! ..or am I?
This question circulates my thoughts often enough to drive me to insanity.
I ponder on this subject for many days and nights.
I have concluded I am not.
Jealousy controls me when I see what I can not attain.
Gluttony controls me when I consume too much at dinner.
My selfish temptations control me when no one is around.
Even in the bright of my days.
The sun determines my outdoor activities.
The wind determines whether I stay inside all day.
The price tag determines what I wear.
No matter the situation, pleasant or troubling, as much as I strive to be in control; the extremities of life continue to find a way to control me.
