My Prayer - Poem by sam elere


Protect me from the swoop of death
And make me dwell in health.

See me through all battles
Victorious with the thrust of faith.

O! That I may stand through time
Grizzled with wisdom and principle.

That I may soar on heights
Steadfast on wings of diligence.

That I may swim the ocean of life
Dignified with fins of affluence.

That I may be the sun
To the moon of multitudes.

That those who told my story for scorn
May seek the forces that propel my launch.

And oh! That the flame of love
May razzle my heart forever!
Oh! Lord I pray (amen) .
