I’m a compulsive thinker,
that’s all.
But, it’s getting better:
slowly I’m explaining away
whatever doesn’t matter
and soon explaining itself
won’t matter any more.

I’ll find enough reasons
and plenty of reassurance
my life is safe
without further insurance,
and my word-shield
will drop
into oblivion.

A Silent, Gentle God
will take over
from that point on.
