Lord? I only want these simple things:
I want Peace. Not war. Love not hate.
A long life to be lived in a happy state;
Let me know the contentment joy brings!
But Lord? What I get are complications,
Needless drama, manufactured misery!
Stress! And I pay with anxiety, as usury;
Subtracts from joy, tangles simplifications!
Sweet relationships can and do turn sour;
Some lasting long die suddenly, fade away;
A Bend, a twist, a break, then goes astray!
Lord? Relate to me in lasting, eternal power?
Lord! In You, I find all the simplicity I crave!
Quiet peace here, is more than satisfactory!
Safe! Far from noise of the Misery Factory;
Lord? Build a strong hedge? All hate do stave!
Lord? Keep me? Wrap me, in simple things?
If not? Help me promote a human tolerance?
Not of evil, but of one another; Love’s balance
Quells drama’s misery, as joy in freedom rings!
