The Forgotten Prayer

May 2, 2014 § 4 Comments

simple words
enchantments
of thought

& meaning
shared in a past life
thoughts that once spun
now only living on tinted paper

could they change
everything

if a poet brought the world to its knees
with splashes of ink in lovely lines
tears across a blank canvas

would we be free from chains of hate
and kiss liberty
without concern

if we heard those words
would we be unafraid
and let our feet stray from the ground
float away to a nameless paradise
and find within a prayer
something to believe in

would the world let love be
if we listened to the words
splattered on paper
from the minds
of forgotten souls

would we stray from our own phantoms
fear less
live more
for each other

could words change everything
if we only listened.
