Life brought me conflict and tension.
Now I move with peace and gentleness.
I used to pray for love.
Now I move with commitment & devotion.
I used to pray for speed
And life taught me patience.
Now I know better:
You don’t come to the divine trying to strike
a deal, nor you approach a higher
intelligence telling it what to do.
You close your mouth
Open your heart
& surrender to the mystery.
