Application for a promotion

You have allowed me poetry
With words,
Will You promote me
By also allowing poetry
In thought, breath, all?


A Different Doctor

As a child,
I wanted to become a doctor
To serve the poor,
But I failed.
You had mercy
And taught me prayer.
Will You turn my prayer
Into beautiful medicine?
