I plea to be spared more distress
as those who steal
have no shame to lie
as the magnitude of the pain they cause is not comprehended
and the damages are ignored
the twisting of my days
the destroying of my nights
all for their personal gain, no matter the crime,
because of their assumed status, their costume.
Favor me, O L-rd.
Eradicate evil and all its pain.
Replace it with good
in the merit of those who serve You not for themselves
but for the betterment of Klal Yisrael
seeking justice and peace
with kindness and love.
Comfort me who suffers and only believes in Your ways of Derech Eretz
as lived by the Matriarchs and Patriarchs,
our role models,
for the good of the world You created and saw it was good.
Have mercy, O L-rd.
Disconnect me from the horrors of evil men
who only believe in themselves
choosing untruths above your basic laws
no matter who they harm.
Their tongues are so crooked , a shell for their crimes.
Protect me from their victimizations and the silence of the masses
who do not risk getting involved
thus compounding the crime,
thus bowing to please the unjust.
My soul and heart seek the comfort of Mother Rachel
to whom You promised her tears to be rewarded.
Too long, I am suffocating by the abuse of the crooked,
the lack of involvement and appeasement of the masses.
I am crying sleepless in the night, blurry eyed in the dawn,
tired during the day, a victim of the takers and their untruths,
the time it takes to rectify, losing my youth, my health and pleasant innocence.
but my heart is steadfast and believes in Your kindness,
and that truth will prevail;
Let it be soon.
Let my enemies be eradicated, ensnared in their own traps.
Let my anguish be replaced with the rest of my years
in the embrace of the good You created and blessed,
harvesting for Your will that will bring Your people back to Gan Eden
