A Prayer for Strength
There is strength in us few are aware about
And there is a tide out there, no doubt,
That bestows it or takes it away; one day I fear
This strength inside will no longer be here.
There is a point in our lives when we reassess all,
When loved ones pass away, ideologies fall;
And I fear this uncertain harvests that arrive,
This pain that often displaces courage in our lives.
This courage that lead us to greatness and might
And that death fiercely attempts to steal at night,
Lives that turn to memories and leave us bereft,
And in turn we give up sweet inspiration for theft.
For just as we feed off each other’s energy,
We’re also barren if we lack such synergy
That we depend for awareness and insight,
Lord I ask to keep this strength in human kind alight.
