God, please help me be less cruel,

I may be angry, but it isn’t fair to blame people for flaws that aren’t their doing,

And are just my stupid opinion.

The solution isn’t in complaining,

And even if it isn’t the right time for me to tackle anything so significant,

Or even let myself become nearly so worked up,

I trust you,

And I know that you will provide for the peace that isn’t currently in Lawrence, Kansas,

Or at least,

In my brain.

Please let me be less callous,

Less rude,

Less arrogant,

Less vain.

I can’t hold a grudge and be a servant,

I need to shut my mouth,



And let so much of that go,

Only saving the things that can truly be changed and should be,

In a way that condemns no one,

And genuinely seeks resolution.

This anger isn’t fair, just, or kind,

Let it be gone.

I will be quiet,

And try to learn patience a little more,

ESPECIALLY in moments of less control.

I am a teacher-to-be who loves people. I am not afraid of many things. I like to explain my thoughts logically on a very birds-eye view level--I was born thinking that way. I follow Jesus Christ, and I accept only that label to describe my identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
