Maybe you noticed that I skipped from J to L? I have nothing against K. My firstborn’s name starts with K. It’s just that I had to shave 4 letters off the English alphabet in order to match the 22 letter Hebrew aleph-bet. K, Q, X and Z got the boot because they have the least number of words in my thesaurus. It was strictly an objective decision. K?
Longing for rescue, I fade fast,
till I think of Your hopeful words.
Looking high and low for lifelines,
I say, “Are you coming, or not?”
Listless as a shriveled up leaf,
I make myself remember You.
Lonely, long days pass while I wait;
when will my foes get their payback?
Look! Those hotshots plan my downfall;
surely that goes against Your law.
Listen, Lord, I trust Your commands,
but I need help with these bullies.
Life just about ended for me,
still I won’t turn my back on You.
Love me, Lord, and safeguard my life;
say the word and I will obey.
