A Penitent's Prayer

I pause on
the borderline
of prayer

My soul
simmering in
sorrow and joy

Searching for
a place to
push off from

Prophets of quietude
distracting with
empty phrases

Declaring love is
justice and

Grace does not

Replace the counterfeit
with fresh and
honest words

with the substance
of hope

Linking transcendent
myth and
reasoning truth

Tools I can
use to repair
my story
