Prayer For Courage
by Michael Doyle

Look deep - is it a surprise?
Do you see the beast in my eyes
God knows that I wish to be good
And I pray this is understood

Often times, I feel this urge
As it moves through me as a surge
There is sadness in my mortal heart
Often proving pensive since the start

Looking hard for all of the signs
For the greater good of the divine 
Though I stumble for all my flaws
I whisper my hopes before God's law

But there it is, to no real surprise
The savage beast inside my eyes
Though God knows I desire to be good
I pray for forgiveness and being understood

I stand in this world all alone
Though desperately I've sought a home
Cards read and fortunes told
My prayer for courage is perhaps too bold
