Marriage Counseling … and the Aftermath

Give me the strength to be kind and wise

To see myself through others’ eyes

To know when to speak and when to be silent

For words can be peaceful and words can be violent

To forget my ego and my pride

And put my angry feelings aside

To focus on what I want to achieve

To speak the truth and not seek to deceive


Give me the strength to be brave and strong

To continue to sing my destined song

When my voice feels quashed

And my heart feels weak

Help me find the determination I seek
