The Illusion of Control by Raymond A. Foss

The world wrapped in a lie
the self-centeredness
man upon a pedestal
though we are made
of clay and His holy breath
as if in the image
made us equal to God

The illusion of control
more than free will
as if we are the creator
rather than his servants on earth
So arrogant his lie
forgetting our station
the work of his hands alone
