Hello, God?

Is that you or me, God?
How can I know?
Do I just want my way  
or will you tell me where to go?
Sometimes I wonder
if you are really real.
With loud opponents everywhere
squashing all my feel...ings.
I’m not quite sure if it’s good,
I try to hear your voice.
I hope and pray you’ll give me
only one right choice.
Not so many or even two
it’s all too much to pick
from all of my thoughts anyways
Yours go way too quick.
Or maybe they’re too slow
and my patience is too thin.
How will I ever know
which is the worst sin?
Keep talking to me plain and clear
so I’ll know what to do.
Every day of this year,
I want to honor You.
