THE PRAYER


For eons my heart would pray,
for my divine right,
like father, give smile everyday,
give me temptation, give me light,
give me vim, give absolution,
i pray to thee, with true devotion,
beatify the one who leaves for a cause,
release their pain with a silent applause,
tutelage us with love,
glint the world with true brotherly spirit
within every heart i have a fire to lit,
a fire to light every lost road,
with a hand to help on every child's load,
with hope i believe,
with my prayer i en-live

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
