you were ugly today
your temper became stronger than your patience
your humanity for a moment gave up on faith
after life swallowed you whole and spat you out
”Let my faith in God be stronger than my humanity
May I care more for the next life than this small moment.
May I always turn to You before turning to a temporary soul.”
I was ugly today and I still went back to God.
I will leave a notice in the windows of my soul that will read:
”needs a witness (apply with commitment)”
may you fall in true love with yourself
before your time here one earth comes to a close
How is your heart doing?
And what can I (an outsider that cares) do for you?
a lover that will greet your past with respect
that will hold your present by the hand
that will dance with you into your future
may you find that love with a lover
or maybe just maybe find it with your faith
may your faith blow new life into you
may you see yourself
finally love yourself
the way your Mama loves you
I pray for you that your hands will hold a face
two eyes that won’t look down in shame
but will see you, the whole you
A lover that will drink your love everyday
that will hold toasts singing how blessed they feel with you
the body had to go on a fast
the body had to embrace the imprint of life
the body had to learn how to listen to the nerves
the body had to commit to loving me first
