I Am Afraid of Nearly Everything
I am afraid of nearly everything:
But most of all, I am afraid of what I might become:
reconciled to injustice,
resigned to fear and despair,
lulled into a life of apathy.
Unchain my hope, make me strong.
Stretch me towards the impossible, that I may work for what ought to be:
the hungry fed,
the enslaved freed,
the suffering comforted,
the peace accomplished.
