March 1987


today is dead

that never should have lived

looking back I see

an untouched span of hours

I merely survived


can God be praised like this

can this neglect be excused

can I truly stand above

my human frailties

or do I remain here

feet planted firmly in mud


great Lord!

I need to praise you

loudly and often

forgive me please

for days like this
