May we find the will to sustain

To give and be hope

To forgive and to let blame

Find its own retreat towards trodden mouths,

Blaming mouths, shaming mouths

 

May we find the courage to love

To realize distinction, to understand worth

Not of those that are easy and everywhere

But those that are rare, unusual, bitter and sweet

Sweet to the memory, unusual to the soul

Bitter to the regret and rare to its being

 

May we build the hope to live

For when we become it, we are it

When we are it, our search ends.

What cannot be on the inside

Shall never be on the outside

Even when dug deep into the earth’s heart.
