I remember the forgotten,
The murdered, the abused, the innocent- both human and animal alike.
I plead for justice, for mercy, for hope to win this endless fight.
I seek understanding for my part in bringing healing to a broken land.
I request peace in my heart that I may extend it to my fellow man.
I desire to absorb the calm that only time in nature can bring.
I ask that my being will dance with the flowers as they dance in the wind,
Sing with the birds as they coast on the breeze,
Grasp the sun like the cheerful leaves.
I pray, I remember, I reflect, and I rejoice.
