I am a very selfish person.
I smirk, when I should serve.
I gather when I should scatter.
I hold on to things when I should let go.
I beg when I should offer.
I consume when I should produce.
I pollute when I should come clean.
I get the best of things when I should help things get better.
Let me not clatter meaning like a gong, but speak with simple courage.
Let me not be proud of my knowledge but use it conscientiously.
Let me not give merely of my time, nor my things, nor offer my body without offering my heart.
I long to be kind to both kin and kings and commoners and cursors of men.
Lord, let me love you and let me love my neighbor,
But do, Lord, simply let me love.
