Pen stuck open
Blue ink comes freely
Under mind
Over and over
For some reason
Help me God
There
Abounding
From gut to
Chest arising
Out of spaces
Where clavicle
Meets shoulder
Bowling over
To let fear go
Asking for a door
To poem
Or at least a window
Earth been here billions of years
Light sparked that
Creation no doubt
On and Om we grow
Trying to get through

Battle of rages
Even Kings and Pages
Settled the score
In days of lore
Needing love too
Believing it comes true
By praying fine
To the divine

Here my heart
Presence that does not part
Away from being free
From fear that lurks in me
Anxieties of life overwhelming
Future foretelling
Much uncertainty
Going to my God to see

That finding faith is worthy
Just stop the wish to hurry
Away from here
My God of love keeps me near
A spirit that rises up in me
To let it help I let it be
It's the most that I can do
To let the love so true
Understand how prayers make me heal
These thoughts of God are real
Growing from the belly button
Way more than nothing
Do not want it put down
Need it around

Because maybe I am not strong like you
I pray the God of love will get me through
Another long and uncertain day
So excuse me if I turn to pray
As my faith in love is strong
It has helped me all along
Then I may give to others
Worrisome fears it smothers
With the light of the next moment
Colors come and the black torment
Of the night
Shines with a spirit's light
In my gut bursting into flame
Healing fear and pain
That soon is dissipated
Because I prayed and waited
To say a little prayer at love's door
Then inside of me there is more
Than this woman afraid
There is God---I have it made!
