I confess my fear.
I confess my lack of faith, in God and in my fellow human.
I confess that I have turned up the noise and turned down the Spirit, intentionally fueling the rage.
I confess my anger.
I confess cursing under my breath and dreaming up twitter slams.
I confess my judgement at perceived stupidity, outright hypocrisy, and deliberate misleading. I confess rolling my eyes and slamming my head so many times a day it might lead to brain damage.
I confess my my own ignorance and naivete. I confess that while I have applauded those on the margins, I have not really listened to them. They told us. We should have listened.
I confess the known and unknown ways my daily life and actions contribute to systems of injustice.
I confess the known and unknown ways my daily life and actions contribute to the harm of our beloved planet.
I confess that I drink more and eat more than I should.
I confess that I have gladly and obliviously pledged my allegiance to the empire. I confess that I have believed our systems of government were good and true and would ultimately prevail. I confess that I wholly placed my trust in the wrong thing.
I confess that I struggle to find God in all the chaos and mess.
I confess that I have wished for power.
I confess that I haven’t been praying because I haven’t known how to pray. I confess that is a dumb excuse for not praying.
I confess that I will have to confess all of this again tomorrow.
