You are here

This is my prayer

Oh disastrous happiness
Oh spiteful joy
To be reminded each day
of my youthful follies
To be tormented in happiness
at the happiness I stole from others

Oh hateful laughter
Oh distastefull comfort
To be reminded each hour
of love learned too late
To be tormented by comfort
at learning hate too soon

Oh painful love
Oh noxious beauty

To be reminded each minute
of each abandoned lover
To be tormented by beauty
at the thought of beauty left scarred

Oh God of wisdom
Oh God of mercy
To be forgiven those moments
of pain filled transgressions
To be tormented no more
and loosed to live a life to its fullest

in happiness, in joy, in laughter, in comfort, in love, and in beauty
this is my prayer
