naked (a prayer in two parts)

to put it as simply as possible
i want to tell you i’m afraid
i’m afraid its too late
there is too much covered to uncover
too many mistakes
there cannot exists in this woeful universe
a love that cleanses like water
a life that colors like autumn
a hope that reaches the bottom
it is here that i wait
it is here that my hope wanes
if there is something out there
if someone is listening
then
i am
listening
i am out there
waiting
trembling
and quiet
with a hushed expectation
that when it’s all over
i will stand in the presence of god
without shame
or dishonor
and he will put on me
the glory he wears
like a garment
and i will be covered
as i have always been
by the love of my father
