Lord, Have Mercy

Lord, Have Mercy                    August 5, 2016
i can’t even ask God
to show you mercy
for you swore by God
to love only me
and you lied.

did you really pray to deserve me
or did you
just tell me you did?

this hole in my heart
where your words
used to fit–
i just ask God
for mercy on my foolishness
for loving you
and to fill the emptiness
with His grace.

you make a mockery of your faith
when your lips speak such evil
and for this
you will need the mercy
i cannot ask God
to give you.


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. I'm kinda-sorta busy being a student again; this time I signed myself up for a bizarre torture known as Graduate School. Theoretically in 4ish years I'll have earned some more nice letters to put with my name. Let's face it, I'm addicted to learning and probably need rehab to restore me to sanity and remove the obsession to read books. 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.
