Lord, let me love YOU and be loved by YOU! Protect me from all humanity, yes, even my own. Shield me for the rest of my days on earth. I will not mind breathing the limited air behind the metallic walls of this cage I am requesting, so long as I know I can never again be hurt by human love. For I know with absolute certainty that one day you will raise me to the mountain top and remove the shield, revealing for me a glorious beauty. There I will be safe. Until then, my precious Lord, protect me! Protect me! I beg Thee, protect me!
