It's Just Not Fair to

Kick the Mule

Enough are the days
   of the silent stare,
      the clenched jaw,
         the stiffened neck,
            the closed fists,
               and toes dug in.

Show me, Dear Lord
   how to so want
      what you so want
         for the rest of my days.

It's just not fair to kick the mule
   for my stubborn ways.
