I find it’s often helpful to let a reader know what they’re in for. What you’re about to read is a praem. That’s a prayer-poem.
On the cusp of decisions with far-reaching consequences, I wrote this to my Lord. It is comprised of quick-rhyming couplets, a stable scheme with slight instability around the middle.
To the one who said, “Let there be light”,
who made the mud and gave us sight,
I pray to ask for wisdom here:
that dark unknowns would be made clear;
that, hearing, I would walk in faith
in any circumstance and place;
that gods called consequence would fail
to rock me, plunge me, drain my sail –
but rather, independent of
these earthly prompters of my love
let God be worshippéd by me
whose eyes were opened, Him to see.
