teach me how to pray [poem]

teach me how to pray
how to speak words both sacred and holy
teach me how to love this life in all its
gritty realness
I want to know your prayers
the words you murmur by candle and incense smoke
secret hopes
only your gods have heard
teach me how to worship you
the Universe’s answer to my unspoken questions
a key to unlock the hidden parts of me
my inner temple
teach me how to believe again
how to have faith in something
anything
please
just teach me how to pray
