Upon Ending my #InaugurationFast
© Rabbi Menachem Creditor
Eyes wide open, spirit renewed
I gaze at a sky, somehow
just as blue as yesterday.
Before I end this elective fast
I gaze at Heaven, somehow
assured that there is yet hope.
As I bring this water to my lips
I pray for strength, somehow
knowing the strength is waiting
in eyes and arms and hearts
spread across this wounded home.
I close my eyes,
measure my breath,
and accept the task ahead.
May Love be our portion, O Lord.
