April PAD 15: Strength


You button me together on Monday morning,

slash my Tuesday debts with forgiveness,

wash the pompous mask off Wednesday’s face

and by Thursday You strap my confidence

to Your saving grace.

when the sun sets on Friday

hope is an invincible balloon

buoying me again, up to You.


Prompt: Write a poem that includes the words: slash, button, mask, strap, and balloon.

My relationship with God is new everyday. That is what inspired this poem. I had a particularly difficult weekend but having His strength in my weakness made me get through the rough spots. Hope is a potent healer.
