I’m Just Tired Of It

I’m Just Tired Of It

My own family may have needs or wants that I care no less about because of how I feel. That each has enough becomes the priority.

As a country, the United States is rich beyond measure. Because we have chosen corporate profit over the health and well-being of our citizenry is not justification for turning an others child back to a life that may include abuse, prostitution, drugs, and death.

Dear God, I cannot love Thee the way I want to. You are the slim crescent of a moon that I see and my self is the earth’s shadow that keeps me from seeing all the moon. The crescent is very beautiful and perhaps that is all one like I am should or could see; but what I am afraid of, dear God, is that my self shadow will grow so large that it blocks the whole moon, and that I will judge myself by the shadow that is nothing.

I do not know You God because I am in the way. Please help me to push myself aside.
