Prayer to St Monica (my version)


St Monica, please teach me patience

How to overcome my tribulations

I’ve so much to do here

All the clutter I’ve to clear

Just like in my mind

I wish to leave behind

All the worries, stress and strain

Enveloped in my tiny brain

Sorry that I am digressing

I can’t focus; it’s distressing

Teach me your unfailing love

Share with me your perseverance

How you prayed for your own son

From his sins, his deliverance

So that I can learn to live

A life that is fulfilling

One that pleases our true God

And that is unassuming

To family and humanity

I am contributing
