To The Unknown Source

To The Unknown Source To whom this may concern, I commit my soul, my worm. I live from day today, as some say… when I bite the Clover, it is over. Love Hallowed if it be thy name, I have heard of thy precept fame. May thy kingdom come among, in strives my hands I have wrung. Of my meanness reaping seeps, I’ve heard of Love, there be sheep. Goats of mighty ships afloat, descend into the abyss moat. If Love be true Love, the will, of which one’s life should spill, then my will has been, bitter pill, of bitterness has been my seal. Forgive me as I will forgive, of this Love I forever will live. Of my daily bread I will be fed, feeding my neighbors as I am lead. Of whom this may concern, commit I myself of Thee to learn. Of awesome Precept I am kept. Of beastly concepts I have wept. Loose the human concept yoke, of bitterness pill I am thus broke, by concepts of which I spoke. Humans in gross darkness grope. For Frank’s Compose a prayer No I am not as unfamiliar with God as this poem would suggest, But few know the Source fully as the Love that He actually is. “Because strait and narrow is the way, few there be that find it.”

    "yet stagger up the narrow path, incite just love no hatred cast, darkness can deny the truth, stay focused on the light, aloof of the dark " great poetry John...

    I really like your prayer John, I do not know God either but I know he listens to my prayers. I am not sure if I have you as a fav poet yet but if not, I am adding you.

    Lovely, John...I am so thankful that even tho I sin daily..making stupid foolish errors, that I am not groping around in the darkness. I belong to Him. Thanks for sharing this great lil creation and from the angle you took. Love the clove line! Very smooth. Also, thanks for the ABC was a spiritual write for me and blessed me abundantly as I studied the image. Gwendolen

    Many of us are groping in the darkness, John, but I think you have seen the light and know that God is Love. And you certainly have exposed the beastly concepts in your blogs and other poetry as well. I can hear you saying this prayer, John. Beautiful! Best wishes in Frank's contest. Hope to get the address soon. Love, Carolyn
