God, did you grant

God, did you grant me anything today?

The serenity to accept the things

I couldn’t change? Like, the reality

of being human, of dealing with the endlessness

of loss and confusion and depression.

Did you grant me the courage

to change the things I could?

Like my sad, mad, bad attitude

that self defeats me everytime.

Did you grant me wisdom to

know the difference?

If not today, will you grant it when I ask tomorrow

at sunrise, at the noon meeting,

and again at the end of the day?

Huddled with my young sons

on the sofa at the close of the day, hands clasped

asking together, once again,

for serenity, change and wisdom from

an unknown higher power,

we pray, hoping, that this help to be human

really exists.
