The Prayer of Knots
Please untie the knots
that are in my mind,
my heart and my life.
Remove the have-nots,
the can-nots and the do-nots
that I have in my mind.
Erase the will-nots,
may-nots, might-nots that may find a home in my heart.
Please release me from the could-nots,
would-nots and should-nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all,
I ask that you remove from my mind,
my heart and my life all of the "am nots"
that I have allowed to hold me back,
especially the thought
that I am not good enough.
