An Atheist's Prayer - Poem by Andy Brookes

There is too much sorrow in the world,
without my adding to it.

too much religion
not enough faith, hope or charity.

too much selfishness,
so i will give.

too much pain,
so I will try to heal and comfort.

too much war.
so I will, ironically, fight for peace.

too much hurt,
but I will bear the burden.

what I am I will give,
what I have I will share.

little though that is.
