Writing Resources from Fifteen Minutes of Fiction

The following is a piece of writing submitted by Aimster du Clarkentine on January 14, 2009
" We tend to rely on ourselves a lot, often with not very good results."

Watching out for Me

You were looking out for me.
I was too
That's where things got stuck
in this glue
This mess I made
And I cannot click

I was trying, vainly,
to maintain mediocrity.
Why didn't I just
ask You
to take care of me?

God, I know You already see
and know everything about me.
So you know
I'm not so good
at letting go of things.
Why do I carry these chains?
Why don't I choose to be free--
free from my own control
and selfishness and vanity.

How much better things would be
If I let You take the reigns
And if I dropped them completely.
