I Pray - Poem by Brian McBrand

I pray for the Middle East, that much not have good to ever say
I pray for the Iraqi Men, Women, and the Children longing to play.
I pray that they find their hearts and throw away the hate
I pray that their children shall not find their parents current fate.

I pray that they find what they have forever been fighting all about
I pray that there they know the war draws nigh and peace does shout.
It is in prayer I find when all the questions and all the answers fail.
That I find that the light fills the void and goodness will prevail.

I pray in times of peace and twice in times of war for all my loving kin.
I also pray for mine enemy that he may also pray and let the peace begin
