Tonight’s Prayer

May I never be so confident in myself that I cannot imagine losing.

May I never be so desolate that I cannot imagine tomorrow.

May I never be so arrogant that I cannot empathize with the most base of human beings.

May I never be so insecure that the arrogant obliterate my hope.

May I never have so much love that I cannot comprehend the pain of loneliness.

May I never be so unloved that I cannot remember the warmth of holding someone’s hand.

May I never be so righteous that I cannot forgive.

May I never live unforgiven.

May I never rise so high above the pain and agony of others that I cannot reach out a hand to them when they fall.

May I never fall without someone helping me to rise again.

May I never despise the weaknesses in others.

May my weaknesses never be despised.

May life never give me everything.

Nor take everything away.

May I always live life somewhere between the angels and dust, knowing I am both, and realizing I am neither.
