Penned Prayer

Lord, I don’t mean to sin, to offend, to depend, but it seems I don’t blend.

As I try to comprehend my need to defend and to append, I try to contend.

Completely intend to amend my pen.  For being a loose end, my blend distends.

And I find myself at a dead end with no friend to depend.

Please help me to ascend to apprehend my penned back end.

That he might transcend this trend, so I might be a book end.

For friends that I might lend wend and suspend the dreaded end.

Forever Amen.
