God of My Heart

God
of my
heart.

I join
my purpose
with
thy will.

Make of
my crude
soul
thy divine
flame.

Break open
my calloused
heart
that I
may express
thy
love.

I sacrifice
my selfish
desires
and striving
ego
on the
alter
of thy
grace.

I extinguish
ambition’s
embers
and selfish
longing.

That I
may lose
myself
in thy
infinite
creation.

I forfeit
the I
that
I am.

That I
may
become
fate’s tool.

Instrument
of thy
will.

Bearer
of thy
love.

Sun
of thy
morning.

Servant
of thy
infinite
creation.

I Bless You

I bless
you.

May
peace
love
and joy
be upon
you.

This is
my whisper.

This is
my prayer.

Granted
to the
sinful
saintly
and sinister.

I bless you.
I bless you.

I wish you well.

You wear
unknown
faces
but we
share a
common soul.

So I
bless
you.

I wish you well.

May
peace
joy
and love
be upon
you.

This is
my
whisper.

This is
my
prayer.

Bestowed
upon
the sinful
saintly
and sinister.

Morning Meditation

My first thoughts after my morning meditation and prayer for peace, was that I hope every group of people that has ever been oppressed in this country votes today. I am a white male in a heterosexual relationship, and if only my cohorts voted a neo-fascist who speaks brazenly about nuclear war, thinks climate change is a Chinese conspiracy, and has earned the endorsement of the KKK and Neo-Nazis would become President. If only white straight men voted, our country and potentially the planet would commit suicide by politics, based on ideas and hatreds that belong in the 20th century. So in addition to peace, I pray that every group that has ever felt the sting and bears the memory of oppression, hatred, and marginalization votes today. I pray that portion of our collective consciousness that knows the consequences of fear, hatred, and ignorance rejects the ideas that so many of my cohorts wish to carry forward into the future.
