My Master?

My Master?

"... no man can serve two masters ...." Mt 6:24

Father,

Who will be my master?
If God, I am unshackled;
If man, I am shackled.

Who  will own me?
If God, I am home;
If man, I am homeless.

Who will hold me?
If God, I stride;
If man, I stumble.

Who will I yield to?
If God, I sing;
If man, I sputter.

Who will I wait on?
If God, I beam;
If man, I bow.

Father,

Who shall I give myself to?
You, Father,
Or man?
My choice!

Who will I look up to?
If God,
I will not be a number,
Nor property,
Nor a "dollar sign,"

But, a child of God,
Your daughter, Your son.

About the Poet
I am 79 years of age. For the past nine years I have been retired, after forty years, from the field of alcoholism and drug abuse in New York City. I am married and we have two grown sons and two grand-sons. My life changed through a grace-experience in 1967. Writing Christian prayers is a particular interest of mine. This came about by a growing awareness of the spiritual in recovery from addictions. I choose, intellectually and emotionally, to believe the Triune God of the Sared Scriptures as my Healer.
