Plea Prayer


I must confess

my small plea of hope

a prayer for me

as selfish as it seems.

Awaken in my soul

a wish to be spared

just this one brief time

of the strife to come.

Lost is my life

strength of which

has ebbed away

grown weary of battle,

seeking a reprieve

within a mass of

dreams and wishes.

Listen close

within a crowded noise

in a deep suffering world

for a shallow cry

of help

and hopeful grace.

Hear my call

for safety nets

gloved hands

to carry me through.

A heartfelt plea Truthfornow. This sounds very personal. Be strong whatever the situation, I'm sure there is a light at the end of the tunnel. If you need to talk, I'm here. Be strong.

Carry on, as you are, and keep on plodding through. The tunnel will end, and the sunshine will envelop you...
