Synonymous with mercy

Synonymous with mercy

Saying Your name more lately -
a name synonymous with mercy.

You advocate measures
I dare not undertake.

Point in directions I dare not go.
I'm not yet ripe! I protest.

I embrace my karma.
I say Your name

but I'm not Your slave.
A loose cannon, I hide and loiter

in the wilds beyond Your gate,
a refugee from an oppressive regime

without the courage or strength
to commit myself

to Your discipline and Your cause.
I say Your name, indulge in Your mercy

and wait, in fervent good faith,
for my own timely, fragrant ripening.

O child of God, repeat His name devoutly.
Mercy is what you are after
