Always Falling

(Another Prayer)

The world is ending
all the time;
people have been dying in towers
all week long,
and some are dying still;
everyone is in the ashes.

I pray for an end to hatred,
an end to suffering,
and an end to arrogance.

Until then,
I’m glad
I don’t have to fall from the sky alone.

Make peace.
Pursue wholeness.
Nourish the compassion
that sprouts like wild weeds
in the rich soil
of our loss
or it will die too.
