    Repudiate this illusion. Challenge everything. Never stop questioning. Let wisdom guide you. Let knowledge protect. So all that remains is truth.

    Journal: to me, a fool
    -------------------------------------------
    Mood: The Usual
      
    The Fool's Prayer
    by Edward Rowland Sill
    (1841-87)
    The Royal feast was done; the King
    Sought some new sport to banish care,
    And to his jester cried, "Sir Fool,
    Kneel now, and make for us a prayer!"
    The jester doffed his cap and bells,
    And stood the mocking court before;
    They could not see the bitter smile
    Behind the painted grin he wore.
    He bowed his head, and bent his knee
    Upon the monarch's silken stool;
    His pleading voice arose: "O Lord,
    Be merciful to me, a fool!
    "No pity, Lord could change the heart
    From red with wrong to white as wool:
    The rod must heal the sin; but, Lord,
    Be merciful to me, a fool!
    "'Tis not by guilt the onward sweep
    Of truth and right, O Lord, we stay;
    'Tis by our follies that so long
    We hold the earth from heaven away.
    "These clumsey feet, still in the mire,
    Go crushing blossoms without end;
    These hard, well-meaning hands we thrust
    Among the heart-strings of a friend.
    "The ill-timed truth we might have kept-
    Who knows how sharp it pierced and stung!
    The word we had not sense to say-
    Who knows how grandly it had rung!
    "Our faults no tenderness should ask,
    The chastening stripes must cleanse them all;
    But for our blunders - oh, in shame
    Before the eyes of heaven we fall.
    "Earth bears no balsam for mistakes;
    Men crown the Knave, and scourge the tool
    That did his will; but Thou, O Lord,
    Be merciful to me, a fool!"
    The room was hushed, in silence rose
    The King, and sought his gardens cool,
    And walked apart, and murmured low,
    "Be merciful to me, a fool!"

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
