Plea To God - Poem by Judy Meibach

Dear God - My Omnipotent Being,

I do not know
if you are male or female or either, but...

I love you,
I need you,
yet I disobey you.

You have been so good to me,
yet I act like a petulant child.
Children misbehave.
They think
that they should have
everything -
every toy, ever doll, every dress.

They want to have material things -
to be
like their friends.
so they think.

Not to be
an individual -
with what they have.

But I am an adult.

I am learning
to love you more,
to obey you more,
to appreciate you more -
for I realize what I really have.

I have so much -
more than most.

I just don't realize it.

I open my eyes each morning,
see the sun rise and shine
and yet
I choose to focus on the rain that will fall.

I open my eyes each morning -
am able to move my
two hands,
ten fingers.
two legs
and ten toes -
despite my serious fall.

Then I look at others who have
one hand,
five fingers,
one leg
and five toes -
if any at all.

I cry to you and plea
for your forgiveness
for my petulant behavior.
