A Prayer for the Disillusioned Idealist (a poem by Kelly Belmonte)

A PRAYER FOR THE DISILLUSIONED IDEALIST,
the earthbound acrobat whose grip
failed to close at the reach, and in failing
fell below the beginning. May this
new view give grounding as grace. 
Let unexpected friendships replace
pseudo-saviors – and false expectations
yield to merciful humility –
for Your Name’s sake
Amen
