I was made to be wide-eyed all the days of my life.

Some one once told me that  
What is most personal is most universal.
The pain of depression, feelings of inferiority, love, excitement about love, samll things that are big things.

So then, I write., I pray, truthfully, personally with Merton:

Lord, have mercy.
Have mercy on my darkness, my weakness, my confusion.
Have mercy on my infidelity, my cowardice, my turning about in circles, my wanderings, my evasions.
I do not ask anything but such mercy, always in everything, mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
Make me want again to be holy, to be a man of God even in desperateness and confusion.
I do not ask necessarily for clarity, a plain way, but only to go according to Your love, to follow Your mercy, to trust Your mercy.
