DESPERATE



Make me desperate, Lord
the desert-wandering, thirst-producing kind
with hunger driving deeper -
Take me to that place.

Make me mournful, Lord
of plateaus & normal
& all things justified -
Pull me deeper.


Make me unhappy, Lord
with self & habit & routine
with ordinary & safe & acceptable -
Deliver me.

Make me hungry, Lord
for intimate secrets, passionate moments
for things unseen & unsung -
Call me ever further.

Make me desperate, Lord
for tastes & sights & sounds
of glory & vastness & love 
I have yet to know.

Make me desperate, Lord...
for the things
that only come
from a place called
DESPERATE.
