I have believed the fictions of this world
And paid for it.
I am like a locust,
A thing of greed, believing the myth of scarcity.
And I am unlike the elephant,
Forgetting everything truthful
about who made this world and what I am supposed to do in it.
Now I find that these fictions are disruptive
And they have ruined parts of my character.
So I would like to exchange my lies for your truth.
I want to live within your story
The true story of this world and all who live in it.
I want to accept your invitation to be a shadow.
I am not God,
But neither am I nothing – or a shadow of nothing.
I am here to conserve and conceive your creativity.
So I accept my dignity
And my responsibility
To imitate you in this world.
Help me to edit the story of this world.
Help me to re-write the world in love with you.
