hear me say – a poem – a letter – a message

It’s okay
What I’m saying
What I’m playing
That I’m praying
You think you know me and can show me

Hear me           Say

It’s okay
My mind’s relaying
It’s dismaying
It’s decaying
You think you know me, can control me

Here me           Say

It’s okay
I’m testifying
And I’m lying
And denying

And
And
And

It’s okay
I’m conveying
I’m portraying
And I’m fraying

And

It’s

Okay
I’m implying
And denying
And I’m dying
You think you know me, can console me

 

And
And
And
And

Is it okay
It’s diverting
to be inserting
and not be hurting

and
and

 

is it okay
i’m justifying

what you’re supplying

so preoccupying

death defying

dissatisfying

is it okay
that i pray

that i pray

that i pray

  1. Wowza, Ron–this is exquisitely penned, so accurate and relatable. Know that I’m praying for you as I wobble along in my own little life. ALSO, my blog is now Private–and I’ve sent you an invite so you can have access to read my posts. No obligation–just letting you know that without accepting, you’ll get some sort of automated “blocked” message. God bless you, Brother–we’ll get through this murky time ❤
