A PRAYER: POEM


Is spirituality a dying spark

That when poked and prodded flares

Lying dormant within the soul

In times of distress, boldly bares

Create within me

A thirst to know and hold on

In faith and devotion

And revive the early yearning, born

Make my spirit ablaze with love for thee

Make me selfless and pure like thee

Pour the undying flame of conviction in me

All things unknown on heaven and earth, allow to see

Lord, let me not find and surrender to you

When my cheeks have waned and am listless with age

Let me serve with all the fieriness of youth

My fullest resolve and passion, to thee, gauge

Let me not be a tongue alone

That someday like the fir tree, thou wilt curse

Let me be active and arduous for thee

Through deeds, my faith, do nurse

To thee I pray, Amen!

Awesome and up. Perhaps you should rewrite the book of prayers. It might hold some value in that case.
