then let your prayer begin

we have just this one fragile life

let your heart break with those for whom it is already shattered who are cut everyday by the shards of hatred despair and fear

for whom this is all there is and all there ever will be.

let your heart break with those who only know the ache of gnawing hunger who will die today empty-stomached or empty-hearted

let your heart break with those who face a future surrounded by concrete walls or walls as impenetrable as concrete

let your heart break with those who do not see today’s sunshine but who live only one long night.

do not fill their darkness or this space with platitudes.

let your heart break

and then let your prayer begin…

hold :: this space

#prayer
