All I can do is pray.

All I can do is pray.

I always believed that in life, we suffer because of our actions.. I was always under the impression that in the end, we will have to face the consequences of our actions.. "Our" actions. But today, I heard something that tugged on my heartstrings. My understanding that only "we" decide our fate is completely wrong..
Life is a wicked b***h who likes to play with the innocent..Testing them.. Teasing them.. Playing with them until they break down..


 
                                  






******** All I can do is pray *******

Her past tries to hunt her down..
Her future is a dark alley..
Her present poisons her innocent mind..
And tries to lead her astray..

Lost she is in this cruel world..
Suffering, night and day.. 
Distrust pervades her wounded heart.
So, all I can do is pray..


Yet, she fights..
Her spirit, refuses to break..
And You stand there, wondering..
How much can she take?.

The Truth stings my heart.. and I cry in dismay..
Whose mistakes were they?..And who stands in fray?
I wish I could help her.. comfort her in some way...
Yet, from here, all I can do is pray..

Too long has she suffered.. too long has her heart bled..
Stumbling, falling... she fights when most of us would have fled...
So, here I stand, seeking justice in her stead.
Leave her alone!.. Play with me instead!!..

Before I say anything, what should I call you? :)

This is a fine masterpiece. From the opening message, to the picture depicted, to the actual words. The opening message really rendered me speechless and left me wondering.

I really hope this is a certain someone saying this about me. Haha! That is how much I loved it. You managed to strike my sensitive spot, and got me to ride one emotional roller coaster. There is such a pain behind these words that one cannot explain. I am one for depressing poems such as this one. And might I add, I give you credit for the rhyming scheme... oh, how I love them.

"Leave her alone!.. Play with me instead!.." Final blow right there; favorite line as well.

Thank you for sharing!

If they were her mistakes. find a counselor for her, if she is just afraid she will be making a mistake. Tell her welcome to the world in 2015. Valentine

I love this poem of yours. When you truly love someone, it's like you want to claim even his sufferings. Yet, what we do is pray when we can't even tap their back to show them our care. Believe that prayer is powerful.

What an incredible intercession - and written so carefully and sensitively. To express thoughts about life and how it thunders.. then to empathise and defend that single person is a double gift to the searching grey spirit. Oh gosh, that reads over the top but is meant - truly.

' So, here I stand, seeking justice in her stead. -- Leave her alone!.. Play with me instead!!..'
