Begger

I’ve cried and I’ve prayed And I’ve studied

But I still can’t find comfort in you.

I’ve listened and journeyed and waited

But you still don’t pang my experience of lack.

I search for your presence and it swaddles me

But there’s no rock, no sway, no gentle let down

—I feel unwrapped, unloved and ashamed.

My Lord, my God.

Save me from the imposters of myself.
