sorry

God, forgive me
for shattering myself against You.
or rather the graven image I made for You,
shaped with all the tongue-biting concentration
of a two-year-old with her first crayon.
You were trying to say something to the world
when You made me,
something about joy and grace.
but these days I’m afraid all I say to the world is
“leave me the fuck alone.”

  1. Oh…soemtimes when the world beats you up not matter what you do…one gets those feelings in your last line…but I bet your words will help someone today…someone who thought they were the only Job in the world. :-)

  2. You were trying to say something to the world
    when You made me,
    something about joy and grace
    something about creativity and love
    about freedom and relationship
    life and meaning and reciprocity.
