The Polyphonic Me
Lord keep me tonight. Hold me in your arms. I am so weak and I feel so empty. Lord, how long has it been since you've been watching over me? For seventy some days I've seen Your light shine upon my life and have chosen sobriety over the hell that is for me drugs and alcohol. For almost fifty I've been denied the freedom of a car, yet found strength and perseverance in Your love to guide me through this hardship. I have been chaste for nearly twenty days during this season of Lent, so that all of my heart and soul might be with You, Lord. I am still so weak. I seek only You, God. To know You better, so that Your light may shine upon me and may illuminate my soul. Keep me. |
But tonight is different, Lord. Tonight instead of fearing Your embrace, tonight instead of shying away from You, tonight I come to You in love. Tonight, instead of drinking, smoking, or fucking I surrender myself to You and ask that You hold me in Your grace. This is my confession, God. For Your ears, and for any else who may hear. I pray for those who hear me, those who would stop and stare, consider me mad. This is my confession. I am a Christian.
