This Poets Prayer


Johanna Albee

Standing on the poetic shoreline
As the words roll in a sentimental tide.
I bare my naked soul to you
In my writings I cannot hide.

Standing humbly before your eyes
Trembling hands display my essence.
Praying it will envelope your mind
Remaining without obsolescence...

The desire to make you understand
My compilation of esoteric pondering
Roads of thought inside my head
Where I am continuously wandering.

The words that I present to you--
Unpolished and unrefined--
Not a captive to conformity--

In the midst of chaotic ramblings
Deep messages of truth can be heard
Enlightment comes to the patient eye
That looks beyond the word.
