Tethered to Thee

Blaue Seerosen (Nymphaea gigantea) by Paul Adam

Prayer of the Tethered

Why, Lord,
am I always
at the end of my tether?

Why is it others who seem untied
appearing free
to live and love
so serenely?

O help me not
to add to my duress
or seemingly chose my stress;

Push me so I may float
on a pond
like a lily, Lord,
all effortlessly
to Thee.
