I am a lost lioness

Lost for losing her young

Lost for not watching her sail along

In my un-cleverness

My punishment?

Mercy, conscience, have mercy!

Whip me not like a wayward child

Whip me not like a stubborn one

Whip me not

I know I have erred

Erred because I live in a wrong world

Where right has been shelved for long

  1. Dearest Cecilia,

    Please, try not to carry the burden of responsibility of a broken world. I attempted this impossible feat as well and the weight of it nearly crushed me. Please know we each must carry the consequences of our own choices. We can guide and aid (to a point) the ones we love so they can avoid the spear filled pits in this life but we cannot stop them from willingly walking into them with their eyes wide open discarding our counsel. The only thing we can do is try to guide them on the more difficult path they have chosen to tread. However, if they continue to ignore the wisdom of your counsel then they must learn to walk alone upon the path they chose. God is good and always uses our “mistakes” for our good or the good of another. We must be strong enough, with his help, to survive the pain that comes along with that mistake. I pray mighty blessings upon you.
