A month before your birthday
Whatever I do, whatever I say, whatever I feel,
won’t matter anymore. So why do I bother
anything at all?
As much as I wish things didn’t happen,
they have. This is what has been written
and I am utterly incapable of changing them.
Now there is no place for me to run
but You. I can only pray that You will
stop taking people away from me.
But I am learning to trust You.
So I will pray that You introduce me
to people who will stop leaving.
