there is a peace that no one can give you
it is always in you to be rediscovered

there is a greatness that no one can give you
it is within you and without you everpresent

you and I will be forgotten
yet we die into the lasting Mystery

you and I are poor
yet we indulge in all the wonder of life

there is no one who is inadequate
there is no one who is less

(oh strange vapor!
what great wild leaps you will make
what grand failures you’ll have
in your losses in your pain
you are human, cherished
and wholly holy)
