When I'm Weak

When I'm weak
Dear God, arise and keep
My heart and mind
Lest I stray and go blind
Be bamboozled
As I seek to find
Purpose, reason, and rhyme
Meaning to life
Beyond societal strife
Contention at home
From which I wish to roam
Anchor me within
Enable me to conquer and win
This race called life
Keep me from the rat race
Let not my soul be encumbered
And needlessly chase
Give me a kind heart
To forgive with mercy and grace
To overlook an offense
And not alienate or displace
The people I most desire to embrace
Life is good to the taste
It is to be joyously celebrated
Not aggravated or frustrated
Nevertheless troublesome times come
From irritating people I wish to run
Not all things about life are fun
Mesmerized by making money
Can make even the intelligent dumb
At the very least bitter and numb
Because of the monotonous daily grind
Moments in traffic are not sublime
Yet being patient is no crime
Such virtues give me so that I
Can live life properly with perspective
Not push, complain, nor play detective
Lying accusers are already many
Give me contentment to just be me
To lift up my eyes and clearly see
Beyond the frail futility
Of life's incessant monotony
To obtain things necessary
To survive and sustain the actuary
With computations monetary
Such things are both important
And dreadfully unimportant to me
A paradox which has got the best of me
Nevertheless I go on God
Working to feed me and my family
Therefore I pray you strengthen me
To arise and do this continually
Not give up the ghost prematurely
Make something of my life worthy
Give me wisdom, favor, finances
Propel and promote me to flourish
My weary soul now nourish
Enabling me to joyfully accomplish
Let not life's struggles tarnish
My faith, my force, my desire
Resurrect and burn within me new fire!
