How am I Lenting – Let Me Count the Ways

My Apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

How am I Lenting? Let me count the ways.
I am Lenting to the depth and breadth and height
My caffeine withdrawal can reach when waking from the night
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I am Lenting to try to reach that place
There in the Garden, keeping watch in the night.
I strive to Lent freely, as well as I might;
To Lent purely, throughout these 40 days.
My Lenting lacks the Passion that You put to use
Bowing Your head to the will of Your Father with faith.
My Lenting is pale as I do what I do not choose.
With my lost senses, I try and catch my breath,
Thinking of all my life! and of how You paid my dues,
I shall try to comprehend how I sentenced You to death.Ψ
