Night Prayer - Poem by Eric Cockrell

we forget how great a gift every moment is...
we all have problems, have worries, and walk the fine
line between joy and despair....
but tonight, let's lay it all down, and walk in the moment.
they tell you prayer is a lot of things,
but i think prayer is the gratitude that feels,
that absorbs the good and the bad,
that drinks sorrow, and dances.
i have never been more alive than i am right now.
i am fire, i am darkness, i am sin, i am redemption.
without grasping, i am free...
no matter what comes, no matter the battle...
this body does not hold who i am.
who am i? I am you!

    Really really love it. Most people think they are hard
    done by, but if they just stopped for a minute and
    really looked at what they had, then they would see
    that they had everything they need. But a lot of people
    won't stop and look they just want more.
    A really fantastic poem.
