Forgotten Memory

FORGOTTEN MEMORY, BY SIOBHAN MAC MAHON

 

Let us grieve for the broken body of our Earth,
For the pillaged devastation of our despair,
Crying out in her agony
Her legs splayed open wide
And all her treasure plundered.

 

Let us cover our naked bodies
In the ashes of our dead and weeping
Kneel upon this blessed Earth
Sending up a great lament
Imploring her forgiveness.

 

For this is our body
This is our blood.
Only we have forgotten.

 

We have forgotten
The Holy Mystery of our lives
The place where prayer
Opens softly in the darkness
Of our bodies humming
With sweetness, the place
Where every cell and fibre of our beings
Is ringing out an Angelus
An Alleluia chorus, an Ave Maria.

 

Let us remember
The deep well of our belonging
The Holy Mystery of our lives
And let us dream
A new world into being.

 

Let us dream
A new world Into being.
