This mess we’re in…
I know it’s one of our own making,
and we’ve managed to mess up your Creation rather completely…
save us from ourselves!
This stench we smell…
I know we have chosen to roll around
in the biggest pile of (um) “fertilizer” we can find…
forgive us and cleanse us from our unworthiness!
This life we live…
I know it is fast-paced and stressful
as we rush to meet the obligations of our too-full calendars,
grant us the peace we cannot find
