Selfish Prayer - Poem by YURI DURAAN

I dare not pray for myself
lest I may receive what I do not deserve

so, I pray for you...
your happiness,
your prosperity,
that you may find the love
who will hold you,
cherish you.... allow you to be the person
you thought you could be...

and in praying this for you
I might just get what I do not deserve

    A very insightful poem. Isn't it great that genuine concern for others(prayers) bring personal blessings as well. An excellent read. Thanks....10....
