Pray For Reprieve

We always ask for excuses and pray for reprieve
Cheat our own conscience and deceive
What is use of prayer if that goes with hollow aim?
How can we still pretend innocence and claim?

We all know He is all powerful and very kind
Only things to follow is to adhere to and not act blind
He is always three to help us and take out from crisis
There has to be some limit on our actions with some basis

Is this the only way left to us?
Have we lost all the faith and trust?
Do we go to God only when face the tide?
Can’t we leave the flank so wide?

It can not be called ignorance
It is our excuse trail and stance
We have become greedy and ignorant
We blame God for all incidents

In despair we look at the sky
Curse the self and ask always why
It is not the God’s creation
We have been in for our own in critical situation

When will we understand and come to term?
When will we leave behind past and concerns/
Almighty is always there to take care off
Why do we make mess out of it and laugh

You have tears in eyes when find no answer
Nothing may appeal not even good rain with shower
You want limited gain for your just need
You have become so selfish with greed
