FORGIVE THIS MY HUMBLE CRY

To appease the anger of God,

Attempt to mollify.

One utter impossibility!

Forget it!  Do not even try!

.

.

“Pride of life.”  I am rich, he is poor,

Have money to give, not he!

Proud?  Of course!  I worked hard for this.

Get all that is coming to me!

.

.

Do not have to have wealth to show pride!

Just a bit of modicum.

Enough to produce that higher look,

And sorry when day is done!

.

.

We know “Pride goes before a fall,”

“Humble shall be exalted”.

Ever tasted unsavory eggs?

As before they are salted?

.

.

I write this now, sure saddened to know,

Love will not stretch beyond.

I want it  to, God  h e l p  me to

Spread charitable seed around!

.

.

Now, that I cannot get around much,

Legs and back to blame.

Agonize, saddened by this lack!

Like, past gone!  My shame!

.

.

God, look upon this atrophy,

Life near wasted away!

Forgiveness needed my idle past,

Forgive!  Naught left to say!

.

.

Sure, He forgives!  But not to assume,

Forgiveness not cheap!

Died one horrific death to

Lack of mine so very deep!

.

.

God forgive me!  How many the lost,

Never to find their way.

To the fold due to my lack!

I plead, humbly pray.

.

.
