Prayer

Prayers aren’t pennies
Thrown into a well;
No wizard or genie
Grants wishes, cast a spell.

God’s no four-leaf clover
Or rabbit’s foot to rub;
God’s waiting, watching over,
Accepting those we snub.

Knocking down another
Pushes everyone down;
Hate will slowly smother
Until we finally drown.

We’re God’s hands,
Left and right.
Together love expands;
Floods darkness with light.
