I pray that you will never know a hurt like that within my soul.
A hungry day, a lonely night, or ever have to see the sight
Of oil washed upon your shores, or the horrible reality of wars.
I pray that you won’t have to feel a desperation that makes you steal,
Or a hopelessness from which you shrug,
“SO WHAT, WHO CARES?!,”
Because you’ve never had a hug.
May you never know the aches of heart,
Where devotion and affection
Have been crushed
And can not start,
I pray for you so innocent, yearning to experience Life…
That yours won’t have to be like some who’ve come before,
Who for the dollar shut Heaven’s door to make a mockery of freewill.
May you bring hope and never kill the joy of peace, the peace of Love.
Then never shall you fear the shroud of gleaming buildings crashing down
To burning rubble, to a dusty cloud,
Crushed beneath the searing weight
Of humanity’s breath and lifelong hate;
Then never shall you fear the shroud of a homeless night or a mushroom cloud.
Dedicated to all who have suffered the blows of human violence and injustice from time immemorial.

||I strive to:
Live in today, take life as it comes, and remember that love is the secret to happiness.
Be the best person I can be--and do my best--then I'll have no regrets.
Remember that everything is NOT always about ME.
Give more than I take.
Let Go and Let God!!
