For Prayer

Poem By maggie oke

Do you ever sit and wonder what they’re doing now
Asking all the questions
The why the when and how

Going all directions
Up down back and forth
Wandering east and west of it
Going south and north

Looking in my pockets
For the change to make a call

Wanted to say sorry
For the madness of it all

The games of mind
The hurting soul
Times unwind
What to gain from all the pain

All the whys beneath the sky

What’s left is need for help
The yelp the prayer
It’s rare that love and lovers
Are lonely only

Looking in my mind
for a call to make the change

Take a risk
Assess the right and the wrong of it
The pleasure over happiness
The rules over responsibility

Don'T Descend

Don’t descend to that state where beauty can mock you
For not feeling part of it
For you not feeling part of people

Fast Track

They've discovered the cause of everything
No more angels no more legend no more myth
Pray if you like to the gods who have died
Only science and money will grant you your wish

Adolescent Fear

Adolescent fear never speaks in its own language
Always translated into the impure tongue
Of cocky
Mock confidence

Aerial View

You didn’t want to swim in the polluted sea
You only wanted to contemplate the purity
of the crystal mountain source
And look heaven wards
