I soften my heart

                    God of Love, in a world great with darkness I drink your light.

In a world of violence I soften my heart.

In a world of fear I deepen my breath.

In a word of grief I enlarge my embrace.

In a world of shouting I open my roots.

In a world of fragments I let myself belong.

In a world of walls I go out into the streets:

I bear you to those who are mad with hunger for you.

In a world of fissures I return to you, always to you.
