Yet I Pray

Yet I Pray πŸŒ•πŸŒΌ

i see them all bowing their heads in supplication
begging earnestly, humbly or maybe i thought
in the church, all Sundays for worship and adoration
over the years as time goes by
and yet i never understand why

why they seemed to be good, to be nice, to be kind
only within the confide of the walls of the church
for everyone to see, for everyone to witness
over the years as time goes by
and yet i never understand why

why they still bang their doors upon arriving their homes
they yell at their servants with little or no reason at all
they nag at the simplest mistakes of their children
over the years as time goes by
and yet i never understand why

they who claimed to be servants of God live a luxurious life, amidst vow of poverty
they have been allegedly molesting women and children
they have been irrational human beings
over the years as time goes by
and yet i never understand why

why, really why, yet i pray.

i pray for God to grant me wisdom to understand
things that i can’t barely acknowledge
pray for God to grant me discernment to preceive things better
over the years as time goes by
and yet i never understand why

why, really why,
yet i pray
i keep praying
even if i don’t know why

    A prayer is a hope. And keeping hope is always important.

    The dichotomy of human behavior is hard to comprehend. If we were the same inside out, we would be a far better species.

  5. πŸ’”πŸ™β€ You describe a very real problem. Many people try their best and just fall short. Others really are hypocrites and worse.

  6. Beautiful, SweetMich! Your poem brought tears to my eyes and touched my heart. I’ve had the exact some ponderings of “Why?”. And yet I still pray, too.
    While prayer is important for many reasons…I think the pray-er is often helped as much, or more, as the pray-ee (the person they are praying for).

    This question has been floating around like the autumn leaves. Why is a powerful question and one that I cannot fathom. I too pray. I trust in God but not so much the flawed humans… Forgiveness is foremost in my thoughts as the whys swirl around my heart…. You poem is timely and a perfectly formed universal question!!

    wow impressive poem, you nailed the hypocrisy of it all and your song matches well … kudos! If our belief is deeply within our heart, not the institution, then our prayers will be heard. They have to live with their transgressions but sadly they ruin many lives along the way.

      Thank you Kate…and yes, i agree with you..some of these whom others adored and honored have ruined the lives of many..and it angered me to see them still living their lives as if nothing has been done, or as if no harm has been made..in my own country alone i’ve seen and witnessed a such…
