Prayer's Sin. - Poem by Samantha Williams

Everyday I cry myself to sleep
After I prayed for something that'll make me happy

I always ask you for a favour
I always ask you for something more
I'm never happy with the things you gave me
I never thanked you for anything

I only pray when I want something
You never asked me for anything - you
It all seems so natural, but it isn't
This is the prayers sin

I have to stop lying
I have to stop dying

I always blame you for the things
Who aren't perfect in this world
No one's perfect, I know that too
But every night I'll still ask you
For something more

(the prayers sin, the prayers sin)

I only pray when I want something
You never asked me for anything, you
It all seems so natural, but it isn't
This is the prayers sin
