A Metta Style Prayer for Peace

May I free the captives in my heart
Those whom I’ve imprisoned
Because they hurt me…scare me… or don’t look like me
May I set them free today.


May you free the captives in your heart
Those you’ve imprisoned
Because they hurt you…scare you… or don’t look like you
May you set them free today.


May we all free the captives in our hearts
Those we collectively have imprisoned
Because they hurt us… scare us… or don’t look like us
May we set all captives free today!
