Am Tired Of My Life


Am tired of my life
I want to live your life;

Am tired of living like a pest
Instead of constructing, damaging instead;

I no longer have the energy to live like a parasite
Benefiting from you and never returning the favor;

I don’t want to be like an orchard either,
It is nothing to gain from you but still remain small in my life;

Am done living like a dog
I am eager not going back to my old ways;

Am tired of being wherever there is rotten life or dead life
It feels bad to live like a vulture or a hyena, for that life is enjoyable for a while;

I want to live a life of listening to you like a dove
Doing your will and serving you;

Just as the plants thank you by feeding the rest of your creation
Being grateful for saving my life, I want to serve you by spreading your words to all creation;

I despise a sad, lying, weak, incomplete, mortal life of the dark
I zeal for the happy, strong, true, complete, eternal life of the light

I ardor to be like you Lord, but I know I am not perfect
And I thus trust you, to help me through

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
