MISSING OUT

MISSING OUT
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret, seeking to crack upon the stereotypical “male” persona)

I don’t wanna be missing out on joy.
I don’t wanna be missing out on me.
I think I gotta “one up” on you, boy.
I’m boss, I’m tough, I’m pack leader, you see.

You won’t “runt” me, leaving me all down low.
I’m gonna move up the “strong ladder” high.
“All you down there, I’m King! So all you go!”
But when I free fall, the drop will necktie.

I need to be lowly, below, humble.
I don’t like it, but I don’t like the pain
of missing out on me, God, all stumble.
So, I’ll hang low and accept you humane.

I won’t be missing out on much so meek.
But rather He’ll make me strong in my weak.
