When I Need to Recenter Myself

I'm not a religious person. I consider myself to be agnostic. I'm not sure if there's a master creator out there, but if he or she exists...that being is beyond language, time, and does not care about our petty problems. 

Even still, I believe there is a universe out there that will give you back what you put into it. I believe in being kind, not because there is some prize at the end of all of this, but because I want to treat others how I would like to be treated. I truly value human life. All human life. I work hard to stay true to that every day. Sometimes I need some help. On those days I use music and words to help me recenter myself. 

Here's one of my favorites for just that.

Don't let me show cruelty
Though I may make mistakes
Don't let me show ugliness
Though I know I can hate
And don't let me show evil
Though it might be all I take

Show me love
Show me love
Show me love

Don't let me think weakly
Though I know that I can break
Keep me away from apathy
While I am still awake
And don't let me think too long
Of the one I'm bound to face

Show me love
Show me love
Show me love
