Waiting to Die

I have known many dead
waiting to die
because they never learned
to let go
of fears
mistrust
need to control
self-righteousness
the feeling of entitlement

And so they sit…dead
waiting for the devil’s big joke
death comes in many forms
to those who refuse to surrender
let go
bend their knees
and let God give
what He chooses
for only He knows
what we need.
God gives only love…generously
to those open to receive
