A Prayer

Hail Loki, Bringer of mischief and magic
I see you, hiding in the shadows
I feel you, lurking in the corners of chance and mystery
I long for you, when my life has grown still
I worship you, when you bring the gift of change
Never a dull moment is what I’ve always said
Because of you
I don’t fit in anywhere, I’ve always said
Because of you
My life has been blessed with chaos and joy
Because of you
My eyes have been opened to a different way
Because of you
The strife with others need not be my own
I can stand for myself with you at my back
Lead me down the rocky path
That I may see the beauty beyond the pass
Every change has its price
But you will not ask more than I can pay
Whether or not I know it
Every ending leads to a new beginning
With you as the fire to light my way
Though sometimes it may burn
Hail Loki! The catalyst! The firebrand!
Hail Loki! Speaker of truth! Take my hand
Save me from drowning in complacency
And send me always down strange new paths.
