Quebec

it is in prostration
that the worshiper is most vulnerable
glory to my lord the exalted we recite
hearts filled with longing
how can such a sacred moment be disrupted
how can such intimacy be dishonoured
what cruelty happens to man after he leaves his mother's womb
that drives him to inflict such pain on others
to god we belong
and to god we will return
shattered
terrified
but we rise from prayer
in love and with hope
