Prayer to the Lord Buddha

Prayer to the Lord Buddha

A Poem by Tara Pi Noi

My Lord

I ask for too much

when I pray that people

not lie ... not steal ...

not kill ... not rape

My Lord

I ask for too much

when I pray that people

who lie ... who steal ...

who kill ... who rape ...

My Lord

that they may feel lighter

that they may be happy

that they may feel free

My Lord

Because maybe for all of us

The meek and the weak

The innocent and the sweet

The eternal children

Because maybe for one hour

for one breath

we may love without fear ....

It felt like reading a prayer in form of a poem. In a world of lost divinity, the sentiment expressed here is very elevated and noble. Maybe in the future I'll try writing some of my prayers into poems
