A Prayer For One Experiencing
When disease again flexes its muscles
and the weather tears through our best laid plans,
when the present appears precarious
and the way ahead resembles a Houston freeway,
make our spirits as tough as Texas mesquite,
that gnarly ballet of tenacity,
anchored by a stubborn taproot of intractable faith.
