Thoughts … Prayers

 

theyre all well and good

these touted thoughts

with their accompanying prayers

its nice to know

theres a least that can be done

that thoughts

and prayers

find their way to need

 

but

 

what good are thoughts

when hands are missing

 

or

 

what value prayers

if to an ineffective god

 

do these merely serve

to sate our jaded conscience

pleased now weve done something

we need do nothing more

or do we believe

do we really believe

our thought offer salve

to a hurt a world away

or our prayers succeed

where we would never be
