Prodigal return, confession of mortality...(2002)
by Peter Menkin

Flesh, that yields
to time. Soul entreats
my failures not noticed
in return to God
with open heart.

Stricken with failures
of being away from You.

What's known, you are merciful.
What's known, Christ prayed.
What's known, the cup.

Allow my unbelief
become belief; strengthen us.
We are prodigal; I am.
