Give me audacity.
I need it to stand
in these robes
you've adorned for me.

Your enemy mocks me,
tells me I'm homely.
And some of your children
like I'm in Joseph's colors, scorn me.

But, you are good and right
to work this way.
So greatly your glory
is offset by clay.

So dress me.
Make me a spectacle
to powers that be.
Display your wisdom
through my simplicity.

I know I'm dark,
but you call me lovely.
So I'll stand for you.
I'll even fight,
if you'll teach me.

Only allow me to reflect your glory
and give me audacity.

- Veronica Boulden
