Motherhood is…Prayers

motherhood is (1)

Help him use his voice
to protect the least of these,
and not just himself.

Cultivate kindness,
so it springs up from within.
Lord, transform their hearts.

May she be so strong
the world won’t know what hit it.
No fear, just more love.

Protection, safety,
and all I try to give them,
comes only from You.

Protect them, Lord, please.
I am afraid of this world.
But no fear in love.

They need to know you.
(Not the you I thought I knew.)
Love is a person.

This is it, friends! Today is Day 30 of my Write 31 Days series, and it’s my last day of haiku. Tomorrow, I’ll share some thoughts about the month as a whole. Thanks so much for reading along this month. If you’d like, you can read the rest of my “Motherhood is…” series here.
