'MY FRIEND'

 
I HAVE A FRIEND
WHO SEES ME
AT MY UGLIEST---
HATEFUL, SPITEFUL, BOASTFUL,
SINFUL---
BUT HE FORGIVES ME !
 
. . . AND BECAUSE HE FORGIVES ME
I CAN BE BEAUTIFUL !
 
 
    Thou Knowest My Downsitting And
    Mine Uprising, Thou Understandest
    My Thought Afar Off. . .
                                Psalms   139:2
