What you pray when you pray…

What do people pray,

I wonder;

what do they whisper

to the Almighty

when no one’s listening

on those ordinary,

uneventful nights

when work has wearied

and bills worried,

when love is trusted

and promises are to be kept;

what do they venture

knowing they are known

and there are no secrets

that are kept,

no wagers to be made;

what do they dare

ask after forgiveness?
