In Control
The seed, a complex network of life
Of intelligence, more than that of man
Life and its regeneration living inside
Inside its microscopic but busy environment
Superior creation from a superior source
Like supernatural but yet humanly conceived
A tiny seed swimming through a tiny channel
With God in control of its movement
The maturation of a seed into
A human being living inside another
A magical but yet natural phenomenon
In complete control by the Almighty
Who or what else could it be?
In control of mother’s instinct at birth
A precious little life to keep safe
Through formative years
Independent thoughts appear
Crucial decisions to make
Who is in control?
When death beckons, we all
Fall back into God’s hands again
God is in control
