Those Misguided People In The World
Prayer By Ana Maria Maxim
Despite the LOVE you feel and the joy you radiate,
there are those misguided persons in the world who would see you harmed.
They will confront you with fists or await you in the darkness with blades drawn.
Do not fear them or become angry with them.
Allow your heart to hold the emptiness of PURITY.
Your receptive spirit will hear the sadness and rage of your attackers’ intentions
and your body will flow with the winds of their hatred.
You will take them to the destruction they seek.
And as the dust settles and the blood dries, do not let your own joy decrease
nor find the world any less beautiful simply because some persons refuse to see you with eyes that LOVE.
