A Final Plea--By Carolyn Devonshire--United States

A Final Plea

I wonder if you can hear my cries.
With tear-filled eyes I look to the skies.
There’s no response; something inside dies.

I understand others have trouble;
life in pieces, I sort through rubble
and cast prayers aloft in hope’s bubble.

I meditate on my past mistakes
over sins committed, my heart aches.
Please listen, dear Lord, as my faith shakes.

I contemplate harm I’ve done others,
those I call my sisters and brothers,
as the hope within me now smothers

I stand in awe of Your great power -
and cast prayers aloft in hope’s bubble.
Please save this wretch in her last hour.

Carolyn Devonshire is from Ormond Beach, Florida

    Examining our own heart draws us closer to the Lord who already knows our deepest motives. An humble vessel is a useful one in God's hands. Thanks for sharing your heartfelt poem. I enjoyed reading it!
