40 I Need Something

Okay I’m calling home

You know I need something

Absent, silent, dizzy head, am I unread?


Captive but free

The choices I make appear ignorant so I flee

I can do better an echo in my head

Then I just sigh while turning over in bed

Tired of praying after a day of non-compliance

Audacity wondering why I seem to receive silence

Seemingly the sum shows selected stupidity

Don’t worry I’ll pray again when I need something, rancidity.


Afraid of getting to the gate a few choices late

Worthless, rebellious, ignorant, fake

Inquiries of accountability, hands shake

Is there any oil for my lamp, tears on my bible’s pages, damp.
