Sunday Morning

Lift me up a little higher
So I can see over the Monday morning blues that are already starting to set in
And I can move beyond the mistakes I made last week
Heal whatever problems are testing my faith
In my body, my mind, my spirit
Because I desire
To have the physical strength to handle whatever obstacles are sent to make me stronger
I desire
To have enough wisdom to make decisions untainted by present circumstances or worldly desires
I desire
To be filled with enough patience and peace to wait on what is meant for me
Lift me up a little higher
Not so I can rise above others
And not so I can be more than I need to be
But so I can pull as many as possible up with me
And they can benefit from the journey I have been promised and I will have your favor
Because I shied away from greed, selfishness and pettiness
I give all I have with every heave of my chest and bat of my eyelash
I will not get tired, I will not give up, I will not give out
So in the end
I can be lifted up a little higher

    I want you to win the lottery so you can go forth and do good deeds.

    Thanks for joining the rally with this piece! I particularly enjoyed the opening lines of “Lift me up a little higher / So I can see over.” “Monday morning blues” can sound cliched, but your lead-in to it here gives it a new angle. Kudos!

    • December 4, 2010 at 5:19 PM

      Thank you so much. I’m glad to know that a familiar phrase still works sometimes 🙂

    Lovely poem! Powerful sentiments, shared with an unafraid voice. Fantastic!

    “I give all I have with every heave of my chest and bat of my eyelash”
    Very cool line, very cool poem. Kinda like a modern day female King David writing a psalm.
    Thank you for sharing. Thank you for this poem.

  26. December 7, 2010 at 12:34 AM

    That is a great opening set of lines!

    “Lift me up a little higher
    So I can see over the Monday morning blues”

    I wish we could all have someone to lift us up.

    • December 7, 2010 at 9:18 AM

      I was a little worried about the opening line but people seem to like it so I will worry no more 🙂 Thanks!

    ChUC, I would like to feature this poem on my site in a segment I call Poetic License. The months are filled up until April, so it would be added to April. You will get a link back to your blog and full credit for the poem. Also three times a year I will post the previous four months of poetry into one large post, yours included.

    If you would like to see the first Poetic License to see what it looks like before deciding, here is the link. (http://morningerection.wordpress.com/2010/09/20/poetic-license/). Thank you.

    • December 8, 2010 at 9:07 AM

      Sounds great! I will check out the site and get back to you this evening. Thanks for stopping by and happy Wednesday!

  28. December 8, 2010 at 10:08 AM

    Some pretty inspiring goodness. Heads are held a little higher now.

  29. December 10, 2010 at 9:49 AM

    nice piece 🙂

  30. December 10, 2010 at 12:27 PM

    Very inspiring piece. I could ‘hear’ your voice… sounded like a spoken word piece to me. I share your desires… thank you for putting them into beautiful words.


    • December 12, 2010 at 5:39 PM

      I do a lot of spoken word. Sometimes I write a piece specifically for performing. I actually wrote this one just for reading but others have told me it could be a speken word piece as well. Maybe I’ll spit it and see how it goes 🙂

  31. December 21, 2010 at 4:12 AM

    Thank you so much for encouraging me.

    • December 21, 2010 at 10:39 AM

      Thank you for reading. It’s easy to encourage but it’s much harder to be encouraged 🙂 I hope 2011 is the beginning of new and wonderful things for you.
