A time for purity
forty days to recuperate
my spiritual security
not only through the actions
of my manifested exteriority
but in addition
of my pungent interiority.
A time for prayer and meditation
forty days of separation
to excel the favor of my positives
to rebel against my negatives
strengthening my main objectives
focusing my sincere directives
keeping clear my assertive perspectives
holding fast to uplifting collectives.
I pledge time for prayer
pouring my heart
for all whom I love
my family and my friends
and all their needs
asking forgiveness for those I have lost
hoping they find blossoms
among their fields of tarnished weeds.
We must all remember we are dust
and unto dust we will all return.
