Two tidbits

Strip off self

Let letters be

Silence thought

And barely breathe.




I don’t know where you want me

But I’ll keep praying

Until you show me the way

Thank you for those I’ve encountered on this path

The difficulties and pressing challenges you’ve sent

But moreover

Thank you

For sharing the lives of my co-workers

with me

We’re all so different with our

varied perspectives

I’m glad to be exposed to their beings

I don’t know Lord

If I’ll be abroad

In some land where English is not the

main speak

Or if I’ll be home

With the suffocating love

That’s both deep comfort and smothering

Or if I’ll be elsewhere in between

May Your will be

Not mine

Though I may wish

Let those desires rest

and Your will come

to the fore of my being



Note: I’ve decided that if I miss a day, I’ll post two poems to make up for it? Sound good? Good.
