You Are The Prayer! - Poem by Eric Cockrell

pray for peace,
and then live your prayers!
pray for love,
then give your love a body.
pray for hope,
then make the changes needed
to bring hope life!
pray for forgiveness,
and then forgive!
pray for courage,
then dare to do!
pray for fullfilment,
then give everything you
cherish away!
pray for wisdom,
then listen intently!
pray for tomorrow,
then live today!
pray for truth,
then walk naked and strong!
pray for the earth,
then treat it with respect...
pray with all of your heart,
then be silent and still,
knowing, and believing,
that you are the prayer!

    Hi, Eric
    Very well composed poem on prayer. If we think carefully, we are the prayer in the prayer...when we reflect and mediate long enough to achieve the ultimate Enlightenment or achieve Buddha hood as defined by Buddha.
