Poem: “What is My Calling?”

What is My Calling?

O Father, my heart cries out to you,
And yet it is as though you don’t hear me.
Why, O my God, does this burden rest upon me?
Of what merit will it be for my salvation?

I ask O my God that you reveal to me Your will.
What is it you ask of me?
Am I to suffer in vain?
Or is it for Your Glory?
