The Life of a Prayer (Atheist Version)
From my heart comes the pain, a physical burden, too terrible to bear.
From my mind emerges understanding of my suffering and the desire to be whole once more.
From my lips issue the words of my plea, my hopes for a life reborn anew.
Through my ears I hear the words that my lips have spoken.
Through my mind I tease meaning from the memories of the life I have lived.
Through my dreams I ponder the solution to my grief.
Through the passage of time I accept what has gone and what has come and life rolls on.
