Letter: Prayer for the homeless
May I lay me down to sleep;
And pray the Lord that I may keep
From disappointing those who wish me
Out of sight and far away.
May those who sleep in cozy beds,
With air that’s cooled (or warmed with heat)
And toilets, showers, and running water
(to brush their teeth)
Judge me not (for lacking such things).
Grant me patience and ability to adapt
To living in ways that I, too,
Would wholeheartedly reject
(Were ‘fate’ to give me choice).
May mankind one day live by LOVE,
Free of judgments and inequality,
United in oneness, celebrating life
