Sonnet 54 – Inspire Me Again, Big Guy
Facing problems on my own, I panic,
But do I dare to show my trembling heart?
They wait for us to embrace the manic
And sweep our crumbs up when we fall apart.
I want to jump in my car and just drive.
Leave this old and crippled body behind.
I’m sick of just trying to stay alive.
My body is failing, and soon the mind.
And yet, you give to me inspiration,
Becoming wiser and so very brave
That you make me think we all can win.
I nominate you for Jesus to save.
Take it from a doomed Unitarian,
You are God’s beloved contrarian.
