Am Tired Of My Life


Am tired of my life
I want to live your life;

Am tired of living like a pest
Instead of constructing, damaging instead;

I no longer have the energy to live like a parasite
Benefiting from you and never returning the favor;

I don’t want to be like an orchard either,
It is nothing to gain from you but still remain small in my life;

Am done living like a dog
I am eager not going back to my old ways;

Am tired of being wherever there is rotten life or dead life
It feels bad to live like a vulture or a hyena, for that life is enjoyable for a while;

I want to live a life of listening to you like a dove
Doing your will and serving you;

Just as the plants thank you by feeding the rest of your creation
Being grateful for saving my life, I want to serve you by spreading your words to all creation;

I despise a sad, lying, weak, incomplete, mortal life of the dark
I zeal for the happy, strong, true, complete, eternal life of the light

I ardor to be like you Lord, but I know I am not perfect
And I thus trust you, to help me through

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
