like a wounded animal

my tranquil weakness

my lacking

attracts your great love

my wounds make you hungry

and my small cries and whimpers

move your great love

i am a small prey

a little morsel

for the great appetite

yet you are a predator of mercy

and a hound of affection

you weight up me with great hands

able to crush and dissect

and gentle to heal.

into Thy hand I commit my spirit


o lord, God of faithfulness.

-Ps 31.1-5
