I give you my past
and ask that you explain it to me.
Unravel, dear God,
the cords of confusion
that bind me.
Free me from the bondage
Of blindness and misunderstanding.
Return me, Dear God,
to a sense of my body
that is sacred and not pure,
that is loving and not punishing,
that is joyful and not painful,
and that is healthy and not diseased.
Please, dear God,
undo my past, and return to me.
