Lord, help me find my voice
To speak with biting humor and love
To share experience and entertain
To cause thought and provoke
Now when I spend time
With the minds I enjoy
I wish to do the same
Help me to find the discipline to write
And to overcome the fear of rejection and criticism
I only have to share what I’ve experienced
And some of what I’ve stolen from others
Filtered through my twisted brain
Projected like vomit on moving vehicles
Going in every direction.
