As a Prayer

Let us be

brave enough

to continue to follow

the path of our hearts,

the whisper of hope —

that mysterious pull

to search and explore

and feel the story

beneath the surface —

no longer out of the need

to be fixed

or to fix,

but because we have

felt that longing

in our chests

and dared

to set it down —

to feel the emptiness

in our hands,

if only for a moment.

Help us to trust

in our own ability

to hold this life

a little more gently —

to be willing

to continue on

in each moment —

as a prayer.
