The Humble Man Prays

“A man who is truly humble cannot despair, because in the humble man there is no longer any such thing as self-pity.” Thomas Merton

I am like this window

streaked with rain,

obscured by
blowing dust,
yet holding firm
against the wind.

I know
that some fine, clear day
you’ll open
the door,
wipe my sins away
and clean at last
I’ll dissolve
into your holy face.
