Take Away Everything
Where does the time go?
What happened to my days?
What happened to my weekends?
What happened to my vacation?
What’s become of the order in my life?
I did not create the clock,
I did not create weekdays and weekends,
I did not create workdays,
I created sunrises and sunsets,
I created the shortening and lengthening of days,
I created what walks, what swims, what flies,
I created what grows.
Then I created you.
I didn’t create calendars and clocks,
computers or cell phones.
I didn’t command you to measure and organize,
categorize and compare,
distinguish and differentiate.
You chose these for yourself.
I didn’t create you for these.
Remove them and see what’s left.
