Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the tragedy ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by William Shakespeare.
Today I pray, “Dear God, Inspired by tragedy, does anything gradually deteriorate in regards to love? Or does love remain the constant, calling upon us in a world where tragedy merely exists? Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the classic story in my hands and opened it to this passage in Act II, Scene VI:
“These violent delights have violent ends
And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
Which, as they kiss, consume.”
I mean… it’s kinda true. Life does offer this sort of tragedy… often. Who’s to say? You are. Your words create your world. So what if we turned all of these tragedies and upsets into triumphs and freedoms? I’m serious! What if the world as we know it becomes a different world only because we choose to know it differently, we choose to see it differently. This is a world I can live in. Sign me up and keep me here. I am for a world of peace, love, harmony, protection, freedom, and joy. I am. Because I am peace, love, harmony, protection, freedom, and joy. I am.
