We Are In His Hands In Anger And In Peace

If we come to ignorance, that is His prison.
And if we come to knowledge, that is His balcony.

If we come to sleep, we are His drowsy-drunken ones.
And if we come to wakeful alertness, we are in His Hands.

If we come to weeping, we are His cloud full of raindrops.
And if we come to laughing, we are His lightning in that moment.

If we come to anger and battle, it is the reflection of His Wrath.
And if we come to peace and pardon, it is the reflection of His Love.
