A Melancholic’s prayer

Teach me, Lord,

to enjoy life.

I know about

all the dark things,

the evils in the world.

I embrace life anyway.

The love and tenderness

is more real and true

than any violence

of mind and body.

Help me to be happy.

It’s mystery has rarely

revealed itself to me.

Grant me the courage

and the daring

to live, love and be happy.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
