And to the God of my Mother

May 14, 2017 - Crestfallen, Prayer, Reflections
And to the God of my Mother

I remember when I was a child
I prayed to my god to make teacher sick
He replied and made teacher a doctor
To cure my stupidity with knowledge and stick
Since my God didn’t understand me
I pray to the God of my mother
To open my mind
To knowledge and wisdom
So that from me they too can learn

I remember when I was a teen
I prayed to my god to make her blind in love
he replied he made her transparent
To make sure I saw beyond her pretty
Since my god doesn’t understand me
I pray to the God of my mother
To open my eyes
To see the beauty in everyone
So I too can love

I will remember yesterday for now I am here
I am lost ,the fog blinding, the earth burying
I would pray to my god to lift my burden
But since my god may not understand me
I pray to the God of my mother
To give me a strong heart
To be able to lift the weight of the world
So I can again live
