Heavenly Father

A quad-tanka poem by Shazzar Kallie

Heavenly Father
have your divine way in me.
Let my mouth and ears
be opened and my eyes see
the path of my destiny.

Lead me up the road
of righteousness to the light
of my salvation.
Hold my hand and guide my steps
so I know which way to go.

Speak your word through me.
Let my ears hear your wisdom
as it resonates
throughout my mind, heart and soul.
Make me courageous and bold.

Mold me to forgive
so I can be forgiven
by grace and mercy.
Teach me to love everyone,
and be faithful unto you.
