Lockdown prayers 3
My bum’s too big,
my thighs too fat,
I really don’t like this and that.
My legs are short,
my nose too long,
and in my head there’s something wrong.
I know that you created me,
but I struggle with my sexuality.
And gender’s quite confusing too,
Is all this really down to you?
I have ten fingers and ten toes,
two arms, two legs, and heaven knows
there’s many others worse than me.
But so much more I want to be.
Lord, be the potter, me the clay,
and mould better day by day,
But if I’m just the way you want,
ignore this prayer!
