Let me see myself clearly, without illusion, as you do.

In my self-delusion, I see myself taller and finer than I truly am. In my shame, I see myself smaller and indeed misshapen.

Lord, let me gaze upon myself, my ordinary self, one among many.

I stand apart out of pride, and with no cause. Let me join my fellows.

(Letter #2,204)
