Bhavani Polimetla


There is a war


There is a war between rich and poor
Grant us your peace

There is a war between life and desease
Give your healing

There is a war between family members
Give us your love

There is a war for power in the nations
Give us good leaders

There is a war between time and tasks
Give us skill to manage

There is a war between good and evil
Kick the evil out

Dear Jesus Christ

Be our friend, teacher, neighbor,
leader, Brother, father
be with us always and give your peace.

Thank you,
Amen.

Tonight at Fu-chou, this moon she watches
Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
