Prayer of the Giraffe

Mikumi National Park

Prayer of the Giraffe

Lord, There is so much politics
in Thy jungle;
such an endless struggle!

Forgive my awkwardness,
My inability to hide;
My long neck careening
Side to Side!

Yet I, Your giraffe, 
want to keep 
My gentle side;

Allowing my head
to rest on clouds but...

My vision unclouded to You.
Pat my funny head
so I know you've heard
the prayer that I've said;

Protect me, as
I stick out!
Yet, my heart
Wants to shout:
I'm totally
