A last-minute post before I go to sleep. For FOWC: Platitude. I really feel this. I wrote this poem appropriately one minute ago.
Don’t say only, “I’ll pray for you,”
Which I don’t mind as long as you
Follow through, but make it more than a
Platitude: Don’t you think these tears
Could be alleviated by proximity, more than
Secret, hidden intercession with Divinity?
Please don’t leave me alone.
I am a Christian who believes that prayer can help things. I equally believe that we are called to do more than “just” pray, if we can. EVEN THE BOOK OF JAMES SAYS THIS.
The caps lock was accidental, but I’m keeping it because it’s actually perfect!
That is all. Good night.
