Anyways: A Prayer For Those Who Experience Chronic Illness at a Time of Mass Illness

i had these two papers

wrapped in my pockets my whole life
 
every time i took them out
they got older
and so did i 
 
my yellow heart i thought
no courage
just years
 
but anyway
a day came
today
and i felt the words paperless coming through
speaking then singing in
my mouth
 
‘the world for your sake’
actually means
for *my* sake
g-d loves me
all of me
anyway
 
i have always been near to you
and i will bring other people near to me too
g-d of mystery
g-d beyond the words
 
G-d Who Loves Us Anyway
