My Father oh my Father
I don't want to work any harder
My whole life is nothing but bother
Yet I'll accept no other title rather
Than a faithful son on whom you can rely
I'm on my knees hear my cry
Leave me not to struggle and die

Hear me heavenly Father
Move the line that borders
Between Thee and me
Why you've drawn such a line
Could it be to cut me from Thy vine
Consider and help me to get by
I'm on my knees hear my cry
Leave not to struggle and die

Hear me my heavenly Father
Must you not look farther
You need to see my situation
I'm like a ship in mid ocean
In trouble with its sails
I'm on my knees listen to my cry
Leave me not to struggle and die

An enjoyable piece on a topics that is rarily written; can feel the emotion. --Joe

PS The use of grammar can strengthen one's poetry, as well as place emphasis on one's words (without placing the onus on the reader).

Logic, when applied to people, fails miserably! --Joseph J. Breunig 3rd

Our Father loves all his children
and hears every prayer and answers
every prayer, just as any parent
he wants the best for his children,
sometimes the answer is no, sometimes
yes, sometimes not yet, sometimes maybe,
all from love,
