The inner battle
Will the battle ever be over my Lord?
There is so much depth in each human being,
that only you can see, and understand.
There are days when I seem bombarded,
first anger, then lust, impatience, and fatigue,
yet I know that you are with me in all of this.
It is simply being human, and I must walk this path,
that is what we humans do, struggle to keep balance,
trust, to look at you and not at ourselves and to grow
in the knowledge that all we can give you is our poverty,
failures, and yes the love that is your grace given freely,
yet we must respond.
Let us Lord, ever to keep our inner world open to your
loving gaze, for you are truly our healing physician. --Br.MD
