- A Prayer -


Pray for me, Dear God
that I live to love you �
every day of my life
and love myself too
just the way you do
for I am
a reincarnation of you

Your conscience in me
and images of you
in life�s struggles
make an enigma
of me, resembling you

You�ve been with me
from time immortal...
growing up with you,
I�ve realized
how indomitable,
reckless and divine
is the power within you!

I salute you, Oh God
for seeking this
humble abode in me�

Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
