Yom HaShoah Prayer

as the world grips 

tightly 
at our necks

and life draws so near to us
that our deaths are 
mere inches 
from our faces

the voice of g-d moves from above to below

“for your sake did i create the whole world

and for the sake of those unlike you

did i scatter Myself into far-flung tiny pieces in the narrow, hidden, hard-to-reach places of the lonely universe”

the holy is broken
the broken is holy
every body lives in the broken’s search for the holy in all of creation
