One love, one prayer

I stand motionless in the vast universe.
Around me, incredibly beautiful patterns of harmony and precision are turning.
And suddenly a burst of light fills the infinite with sounds, colours, and energy.
In the icy texture of snow
that can be wet
or can be solid as a rock
the expectation of love is born.
-Love bears forgiveness
and forgiveness serenity –
Of the nebulas that colour the universe
-sometimes transparent and sometimes dark –
life is created through collisions, battle, and war.
If my thought would become a prayer
I would like it to be the prayer of love,
the sweetness that brings forgiveness
and the repose that offers serenity.
If the harmony of the universe
and the explosion of creation are going to be in my life
Let them act out of love…
For every thorn that hurts me,
let forgiveness become a balsam.
For every criticism arising in my heart,
let tolerance endorse.
And for each one of my dreams that was crushed,
let another dream be born.
