Someone is moving Us

We are so sure
that to be receptive
is to surrender control;
that to open to fate is
to plummet through the dark.
We know no loving arms will open
to receive us as we fall.
We know we dare not;
the consequences would be fatal.

The door of our cage stands open
We dare not walk through.
If we act out of instinct
voice our feelings,
we open ourselves to fate.
Better, silence.
Better, the roles-
daughter, wife, mother-
as we have always-even half-heartedly-
understood them.

Indeed we may be making
the only choice we can.
Whether we know it or not,
sometimes we know
that Someone is moving us.
To know this is to be known.
