A Prayer from Holy Breath on Unity

It is a lonely world

that separates us from each other.

Born by relationship,

it is through relationship

that we can come to know ourselves.


we defend our borders,


dry up and fragment

into shards of what we once called life,

leaving as our epithet

a final, furious, resentful sneer.

Imagine a world beyond such barriers.

Imagine a world free of the names, titles, borders

that distinguish us, one from the other.

Imagine a world of healing and love.

Imagine, and break free.
