Independent


I always took pride
in being independent
don’t need anyone
do it myself

The years are teaching me
that at times, I do
need others
and I need
to be generous enough
to accept help
from others
so they can receive
the gifts of compassion
generosicity
patience
that helping others
provides.

O, Lord, help me
put away pride
selfishness
teach me
how to love someone
who is being blessed
by helping me.

Help me to be
a gracious receiver.
