Why must the irrelevant have such a hold, the
Irreligious that disregards all?
My mind must serve two masters
The one is godly and aware
The other is held captive by the pains
And emotions of the past
It is with difficulty that I am able to lift up my thoughts
As an angel distracted
May Divine Providence see fit to give me a day where
This angel is totally aware.
