Pure

Purity
        seems like such an out-dated concept
                it is but a haven for the odd and rejected
                        except when we speak of clean air and water
                                then it is a sacred shrine

Why would we value pure air and pure water
        and not a pure soul?

We rail against those who pollute our environment
        as we should
                but those who advocate and model
                        a disregard for that which is most precious
                                our soul
                                        these are the superstars of our day!

How does this make sense?

Help me to see what is truly true
        let me not become apathetic about what matters
                may I value what is in fact most prized
                        grant me the grace to reject what is fashionable
                                for the sake of a soul that is clean
