This poem is so simple with such a simple message. It reminds me of Bruce
Almighty....we think we would do so many wonderful things if we were in
control and yet we really just mess it all up. I think it also says if you
want to be in control why ask so many questions...you are obviously not
ready to be in charge.

I loved this poem I didn't really get it but it sounded good, and I mean
the weird part about it is that I'm not even religous?!

The poem taught me that even some people could take a vacation but you have
to leave the resposibilities in the right hands or the jab will not be done

I think that it's trying to tell people that we are not in contoll but God
is. So don't put to many things up agenest yourself.It made me fell good
because i'm not god and it would be really hard.
