prayer and hope

Let us lay at Her feet with love, all our thoughts and emotions
Our life and actions from the vilest to the noblest
Our heart, mind, body and soul, all our substance.
Let Her light illumine the thousand dark alleys of life
Her felicity tune the discordant heart strings in conflict,
Her peace cool the warring uncontrollable bodily existence.
May we surrender without any bargain or the least regret,
Our unhappy, insecure, tormented life of gilded falsehood
To the Mother Divine waiting with Her boat to take us
To the other shore, the land of love, beauty and harmony.
