Our Prayers

As the sun goes down, I sit here praying for World Peace and not War,
No War should be traded of the lost lives, for the greedy hands that do not stop to take more.
The greedy hands that desire to fulfill their seven deadly sins, with no mercy to explore.

As the sun goes down, I sit here praying for eternal love in us all.
Eternal love so strong, that in a sense of right and wrong,
There will not be one, to break their bond.

As the sun goes down, I sit here praying for kindness in all our hearts,
Kindness that shall not judge the ones that stand in front of us,
Kindness that shall not be crucified by the thirst of blood, blinded by our wrath and our pride.

As the sun goes down, I sit here praying for happiness that shows through our laughter,
Our smiles, our hearts, and our souls full of joy that cannot be dimmed into the darkness that’s lead thereafter.

Happiness and joy that’s so empowering that the heaviness in our hearts, the emptiness in our souls and the sadness in our minds exist no more, where there is no longer internal disaster.

About this poem

This poem is about what I wish for more in this world. I want us to have more love, more peace, no judgement, more laughter and no war.

    It starts out empty spaces
    But I’m awake, alert.
    Expecting inspiration
    To bring on hope or hurt.
    To show a hero coming through
    Or social norm gone bad.
    To try to recreate the
    Greatest thrill I’ve ever had.
    To show a people unlike ours
    Or countryside pristine.
    To listen to a singing lark
    Or crackling ice at even.
    All this and somewhat more
    Becomes the searching Poet’s task.
    But first the call of empty page
    The choice, the Lord to ask.

      it is nice exchanging like this. Few oblige on ANY social platform. One or two word inputs only tick me off, oh Hurried One. But you get it Oryana. Your objectives are attainable through Christ.

      I really appreciate your kind words. I’ve just started getting back into poetry, as it’s been 15 years. So it’s been amazing writing again
