Make me more -
—–more than another face in the crowd,
—–more than my fears,
—–more than my cowardice.
Make me move -
—–move towards the right path,
—–move for something,
—–move towards you.
Make me feel -
—–other than the void,
—–other than the misery.
Make me see -
—–beauty in this life,
—–past the flaws and scars.
Save me -
—–from these demons,
—–from this emptiness,
—–from my destruction.

A gift of kindness

“Sometime in your life, hope that you might see one starved man, the look on his face when the bread finally arrives. Hope that you might have baked it or bought or even kneaded it yourself. For that look on his face, for your meeting his eyes across a piece of bread, you might be willing to lose a lot, or suffer a lot, or die a little, even.” – Daniel Berrigan
