prayer

prayer
god, teach me
how to love this man
properly as he ought to be loved
willing
faithful
selfless
obedient
joyful
i will follow the path
i lost
you kept an eye on me
as i stubbornly set off
through the wilderness alone
and sent him to find me
when i lost all direction
thank you thank you
god, please, may i have
wisdom, courage, serenity
to carry with me
on this trail
with him to you
i am willing
to give my everything
to carry my children
to your alter
they are beautiful gifts
i do not deserve
and so trust to your keeping
god, take my will
my life my heart my soul
into your vast grace
i would be
passed through the flames
burning my burdens and filth
washed clean in the river
pure and lovely

About m

My ego wants to think I'm a writer but my heart knows I'm just another one of God's Kids who sometimes has words to say. 2 human kids and 3 feline kids call me Mom. Or Mooooooom. Or mewom, depending which you ask. My most recent completed endeavor was finishing BA's in Religious Studies and American Studies. I don't remember what free time is but I think I like to spend it sleeping or playing in the mud on a river bank.
