My Prayer Sestina


Some serve the Lord
Some serve the Devil
Those who embrace God, embrace Love
Those who embrace Lucifer, embrace Hate
Satan wants to conquer and Divide
God wants to bring us all Together

Bring us Together
Dear Lord
Stop the Divide
And smite the Devil
With his unholy Hate
Teach us to better Love

We will Love
To be Together
And end Hate
Dear Lord
Banish the Devil
And end the Divide

"Conquer and Divide"
Not Love
Demands the Devil
Bring us Together
My Lord
And end all Hate

Lucifer loves Hate
And wants to Divide
Us Oh, Lord
Through your Love
Bring us Together
To defeat the Devil

Only the Devil
Can bring Hate
Of us Together
To Divide
Us from your Love
Dear Lord

The Devil tries to Divide
Turn his Hate to Your Love
And bring us Together as one, Dear Lord

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
