Prayer

prayer poem

Poem

 

Say a little prayer for your neighbor.
He does not know his wrong from the right.
Say a little prayer for that racist.
He distinguishes the black from the white.

Say a little prayer for the love lost.
Love lost in all the terrorist attacks.
These attacks are a failure of us as humans.
Humans killing humans.
Humans killing love.
They are fighting for which injustice by creating havoc, multiplying their own wrath.

Say a little prayer for the sadness.
It is felt in the attackers heart.
Hatred has bred hatred.
The world is falling apart.

Say a little prayer for humanity.
It is guided by controlling, power hungry freaks.
Each tooled with diplomacy, trying to promote the American dream.

Most of all, say a prayer for your own ignorant self.
You are sitting content with your things.
The victims could have been anyone.
Hatred met them in cafes, towers, and streets.
