Sonnet III. How Can I Make It Right?

Does true love reside where I cannot see?

At forty-five, I don’t know where to look.

The mirror reveals the true, the real me,

Tired, empty soul now opened like a book.

Yet, no one sees the face that’s meant to please.

A glowing screen beckons me to draw near.

Its deceptive words promise perfect peace.

Messages of love meant to ease my fear.

No more! I won’t believe the tempter’s lie.

No more! I won’t believe what Daddy said.

No more! I won’t let true love pass me by.

No more! I will believe the debt is paid.

Oh Lord, please hold me in your arms tonight.

Oh, can you tell me how to make this right?
