Best Poem of Mike Finley

Prayer Of Thomas Merton (Rewrite)

Where I am going, I don't know
The road ahead twists out of sight

Where it will lead no one can say
I hardly even know myself

The fact that I think I'm doing right
does not mean I really am

But I believe the desire to please you
does in fact please you

And I am determined to inject that thought
in everything I say and do

And I believe that if I do this mostly
You will take my arm and lead me to you

Though I don't feel you, though I could feel fear
I will find a way to trust you

Even though I seem lost, even though ...

Read the full of Prayer Of Thomas Merton (Rewrite)

The Spot

Stars, ignore the crimes occurring
like catfights under the windows.

Sometimes we're ashamed
of what goes on in the alley,
the things we overturn
and track into the house.
If we were cats we'd know
when to move on.
