For a long time
day by day,
I set out to be
friend of God.
There is darkness now,
at this hour.
The night tells me,
who chooses. Even if
the morning and call
daystar, Oh, Lord,
this is a day you made,
I realize now
my temerity and ignorance.
You choose, and You are
to me, man.
Humility recognized. God is all.
