A Poem and A Prayer
She wrote a poem today.
It began when she started to pray.
Then her petitions became
like harmonious melodies
as if they should be the lyrics
or verses for some poetry.
All of this occurred while
she was making her plea to God
She was crying.
She was weeping.
She was letting out a bit of a yelp.
It really was not very dignified
so she dried
her tears after she cried
and the prayer took a turn from
to a prayer of gratitude
She thanked the Lord for bringing her
this far on her journey.
and then she said,
“Lord, Thy will be done.”
