RENEWAL

a poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen, Denmark


Renewed from hatred
that strangulates the flow of love.

Renewed from anger
that bulldozes a mountain of understanding.

Renewed from pain
that shatters the windows of tomorrows.

Renewed from fear
that makes all days to dark nights.

Renewed from despair
that drowns the promise of hope.

Renew us, O Lord, from the malady
of hatred, anger, pain,
fear and despair.
And restore us to the bountiful promise
of strength, joy, faith and service
from the heart of Jesus.
