All The Shit
Let us pray for our shit.
May we be called on it to see it clear.
May we climb out of the deepest despite our fear.
May we claim the whole ton yet not weep it.
May we get it together, and by giving it away, keep it.
I pray for my shit.
May I be called on it to see it clear.
May I climb out of the deepest despite my fear.
May I claim the whole ton yet not weep it.
May I get it together, and by giving it away, keep it.

Dear God, since you’re going to give me troubles anyway
Please make them ones that
Will teach me
Will soften my heart
Will make me useful
Will help me surrender.
If you can’t do that, please give me wisdom
So I can see I don’t have any troubles anyway.

Hey god. I’m not going to be able to pray with any level of respect or adoration. I can fuck anything up, so your perfection is no exception. Might as well curse what I’m going to end up destroying. That way my prayers make sense. And I worship control more than anything else. Isn’t that what rock bottom was all about? I’m refusing to go back but god, if I can’t dig any deeper than I sure as hell refuse to climb. Energy of the universe, you can stay up there or here, wherever, and I’ll chuck a clod of dirt at you every once in a while to make sure I don’t fade out of existence, but prayer is never going to be much cleaner for this dirty sinner. And don’t bother offering forgiveness; I don’t want anything I didn’t make for myself with my own two hands. I guess I’m my own god, sorry Jehovah. Still working to let go of my addiction, the substance may be gone but I’m stuck in the formatting. This body won’t give up even when I’ve decided to, and maybe that is because I’m not alone. I wish I could say thanks for that, but it always comes out fuck you. One day I’ll die I guess and hope dependence isn’t so scary when my body’s rotting (more than it was before). Goodnight mother earth and goodnight moon, as bitter as I sound I’m glad The Small Bow got me to talk to you. It’s been a while. With the help of other shitty human beings I’m learning a while doesn’t have to be forever. – Sarina B.
