My Prayer


God grant that I always hear Your voice
And I listen to it, by my choice,
Please be my guide for every step.
If I plan to do wrong, please intercept.

I don’t want to wait ’til you take me away
To live a good life. I want today
To be the day that I can be good
And know Your word is understood.

It’s not to your angels I want to be kind
But the living sick, the lonely, the blind.
Please help me be kind, please take my sin
And let me live comfortably in my own skin.

Angry Words


Poison words so bitter, harsh,
Said with anger, full of hate.
I bid them be unspoken but
Discovered it was much too late.

How’d this anger come to be,
The acid to the surface near?
It wasn’t anger, not at all,
What it truly was, was fear.

I couldn’t let the world find out
That I was terrified inside,
So anger was the camouflage
Where my weakness went to hide.
