A Prayer-II

A Prayer-II
Let all the weight of history be shed, so we can live.
Let’s still recall that history, so all of us are free.
Let’s turn towards the spirit, away from all that’s vile,
Be freed from our compulsions, so each of us can see.

Let’s dwell within that being – that presence still, serene.
Let’s gather up our scattered parts, so each of us is whole.
Oh spirit that is everywhere and yet is nowhere seen,
We turn to you for sustenance of body and of soul.
