Silent Prayer

Hear me out, I am tired

Hear me out, I am sick

Thus, I pray for rest

Thus, I pray for cure

Still existing but hardly living

Simply smiling but not laughing

Obviously showing but still hiding

Almost frowning not yet crying

Halfheartedly moving forward

Painfully hanging on

With little strength to spare

With little time to spend

Braving the storm with a fragile umbrella

Others too busy fighting their own

Others too blind to see for themselves

Most live in a world of their creation

Of sobs and tears that nobody hears

Of joy and elation that nobody else feels

Of feelings and emotions that can hardly be shared

We start with a prayer and end up with hope

Repeat the steps, we end up with faith

Repeat the mistakes, we end up with regret

Repeat them all over to make you stronger

So start with a prayer and end up with strength

So start with a prayer and end up with faith
