Image for My Longing To Live in my Heart – A Poem

Dear God

 Help me find the way to love

Past shame and guilt and sorrow.

Let me trust that my heart will bring

Me joy in today and tomorrow.

These things called shame and guilt

Taint my soul with soot and muck.

They fuel my rage, cause me to blame

And keep me very stuck.

It is my heart that I long to keep open

In this journey I call life.

Love is my salvation –

Not betrayal from a knife.

Help me see that all that scares me

Are just my fears that are not real.

If I trust and surrender to you, my Father,

I will begin to heal.

God, I pray to use my heart

To speak, to live, to see

The essence of my brothers

Is what’s real to you and me.

Help me find the way to love

Past shame and guilt and sorrow

Let me trust that my heart will bring

Me joy in today and tomorrow.

The heart you gave me is big and bright

Now it’s time to let everyone see

My light shines forth to luminate our paths

This is my destiny.
