Plea Prayer

Updated on November 13, 2013

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.
