not a pray

I felt my life with both my hands

To see if it was there

I held my spirit to the Glass,

To prove it possibler

 

I turned my Being round and round

And paused at every pound

To ask the Owner's name

For doubt, that I should know the Sound

To ask the Owner's name

For doubt, that I should know the Sound

 

I judged my features, jarred my hair

I pushed my dimples by,

and waited, if they twinkled back

Conviction might, of me

 

I turned my Being round and round

And paused at every pound

To ask the Owner's name

For doubt, that I should know the Sound

To ask the Owner's name

For doubt, that I should know the Sound

 

I told myself, "Take Courage, Friend,

That was a former time

But we might learn to like the Heaven,

As well as our Old Home!"

 

Carla Bruni, I felt my life with both my hands, 2006
