I Used to Pray Now I Write


 

May all gods turn out to be strong and mindful

Merciful and understanding of the ways of humankind

 

The things I did that hobble me still, the killings

around the world according to today’s news

the lovers betrayed, the followers misled

the carelessness of doing what you got to do

 

To live free of hate is not easy. To keep at it

is difficult – dare to struggle, dare to win!

 

Trouble keeps occurring. We get better at see-

ing it coming, limiting the damage, and

quickening the clean up. Getting back

to normal is the new norm now

 

But that is not enough – we have to get

at the dark heart of humanity and love it
