|Self-will or God's will... where does it start, where does it end.|
A marionette A puppeteer By hand divine I must appear To stumble for A crowd besmear And languish in My aging year What joke did play This puppeteer To seize the strings To watch them leer My wooden heart Hush beating near In time opposed I see my fear What good is good When gray has passed And He has taken Every last Should sing an all In parting song And youth recall Incessant wrong But leaving time Senescent end A puppet all By string descend And taking up In hand does He Another life And jest to be A marionette In place of me Tweet
