This I Affirm

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

Please bestow upon me,
The abundance I wish...
To be left at my doorstep,

Not tomorrow.
I have yet to touch that dawn that comes.

And remove those shadows of grief,
That would have me believe I cast them!
Send them back to attach,
To whomever and where they came.
Strap that fast to their backs.

Open the door!
And release my mind from its limitation!
This I affirm!
I demand!

If I am here to do Your will,
You will see as done for me!
And with my faith You will be,
Eternally believed.

This I affirm.
As Your gifts I receive.
In a gratefulness,
That keeps me knowing I am Yours to bless.

Remove those obstacles off my path.
And away from my doorsteps.
