Shall You Pray? - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

when the boat
sinks
know where you escape

when the house
crumbles
know where to go

when the world ends
as everything ends
and you know not
where to go
and you know not what
to do

shall you pray?

    It made me think
    do I pray enough?
    I took a careful look
    at myself. I realized
    I spend every moment
    praying and thanking.

    when the boat sink
    I manage to float on my back
    when house crumbles
    I stand back and watch.
    Well, I just have to start
    over again.

    when the world ends
    as everything ends
    and you know not
    where to go
    and you know not what
    to do

    shall you pray?

    Scary thought...
    I will bare down on my knees
    and Thank God for allowing me
    to live in till the very end.

    and cry for those
    who never got the chance
    to live through this extraordinary thing
    called life.

    Thank you for sharing
    I like it because it made me think: -)
