Morning Prayer

Forgive us God
  for trying to make you in our image
    for thinking that you classify
      for imagining we are separate, better
        than one another, so we are not one

Forgive us God
  for asking things which are selfish
    for seeing you as keeping records
      for thinking we can homogenize you
         for you are bigger than our hearts

Forgive us God
  for not loving deep enough
    for not seeing more
      for not opening our hearts
        for squeezing you out and us as more

Forgive us God
  because we know better
    because we have the ability
      because we waste it
        in keeping up the walls

Forgive us
