"He keeps me quiet, I think,
because he sees creation in my eyes.
Maybe a man can build, maybe a God
can destroy, but someday

he can take from me.
For all your talk of revolution
there is truth in this:
I was saved by being secondary.
If you have been made to love and nurture, do.
It does not make you weak."
