For Prayer - Poem by maggie oke

Do you ever sit and wonder what they’re doing now
Asking all the questions
The why the when and how

Going all directions
Up down back and forth
Wandering east and west of it
Going south and north

Looking in my pockets
For the change to make a call

Wanted to say sorry
For the madness of it all

The games of mind
The hurting soul
Times unwind
What to gain from all the pain

All the whys beneath the sky

What’s left is need for help
The yelp the prayer
It’s rare that love and lovers
Are lonely only

Looking in my mind
for a call to make the change
