Grabbing for the stream
Peace eludes my grasp
I feel it for a moment
Before it flows away gone
Frustrated I give up
And hold out my hands
Palms face up in surrender
Begin to fill
Cupping hand to mouth
I drink it down
And I am refreshed
Lifting up my hands
Peace like water flows
Over my head and down my back
In the striving peace slips away
In surrender peace is known
