A Poetic Prayer

Lord –
Let there be a brighter day,
Let there be light where shadows play;
Let love and peace be here to stay.
Let not terror its purpose extol,
Nor malice and hatred be its goal,
And violence take its terrible toll.

Lord –
Banish hostility, sadness and fear;
Expel the clouds of thoughts unclear,
Maintain our freedom, oh, so dear!
Lift up spirits abused and neglected
Reassure souls that feel rejected,
The purpose of life be well-directed.

Lord –
Let not thy love be left behind,
Let hearts and souls be realigned
That we may seek and surely find
The will to do what must be right
 Expel the incubus of night
Out of the darkness, into light!
