Uncertain Supplications
(10/12/2020)


I do
not know
enough
to ask
for the right
things

how
can I?

any
Divine outcome
is far beyond
my realm
of knowledge

I say
instead
my prayers
of thanks

Thank You
for allowing
me to know
someone
I desire

or someone
I have lost

Thank You
for allowing
me to know
what I want

what I need

and the fact
that I shall have
to make efforts
to earn them

Thank You
for allowing
me this existence
in which
to experience
joy

to experience
pain

to experience
hope

to experience
despair

Life
is the miracle
after all

not what
we do
with our
time

not what
we are given
in joy

not what
we are given
in misery
while we
breathe

only
Life

but please

ask
for whatever
you want

perhaps
you are more
perceptive

more
prescient
than I

just be
grateful
whether
or not
your prayers
or answered
