A prayer

Refuse to fall down.
If you cannot refuse to fall down,
refuse to stay down,
If you cannot refuse to stay down,
lift your heart toward heaven,
and like a hungry beggar,
ask that it be filled.
and it will be filled.
You may be pushed down.
You may be kept from rising.
But no one can keep you from lifting 
your heart toward heaven - only you.
It is in the middle of misery
that so much becomes clear.
The one who says nothing good came of this,
is not yet listening.

~  Clarissa Pinkola Estes
