Prayer for the Morning

In the words of Jeremiah, I am a whore--
I have done all the evil that I could.

I say to the tree, 'you are my father';
to the stone I say 'you gave me birth.'

I laugh when your children point out my gadding
changing my ways from this place to that.

But when nightfall comes I am without a home
homeless, I cry out to you:

Truly the hills are a delusion,
the orgies on the mountaintops are in plain sight.

You look upon the shadows of bodies
and your tears fall to the earth like rain.

Quote for the day:

"Love doesn't make life easier. It just makes it worth living."
