Wishes That Remain Ungranted - Poem by RIC BASTASA

we thank God for those wishes
and prayers that till today remained unanswered
there are reasons
he knows all these reasons and we fall short of our limited explanations

we do not have to pray hard for something
that we do not deserve
for some things that may after all be not good for ourselves
the very reason why they remained as not ours to have and to hold

those who insisted and those whose prayers are finally answered
God says
have been duly punished.

we only pray for what God wills
that is wise enough.
