mail to God

This pray is priority
Cloaked of concluded hopes
Mail marked fragile
Glass like thoughts reside within
Orally stamped Amen
May they make it in one piece

Eagerly awaiting results through mundane lively hood spent hours
They must come, for that prayer of all prayers was fashioned of my souls sincerity 
Nights pass by and days venture away, still no reply received of any foreign kingdom  
Doubts that God could read such beaten prayers play mischievous in my intellect
Doubts that the sincerity and tears placed within the prayer were understood
Doubts that prayer exist, and an uncanny skepticism of the realism of its intended reader
Days continue to venture, Night clouds swim by and still no reply

I must believe
Although my hope is battered, it’s not yet broken
Although doubts encroached my will, belief still subsist 
For He will reply
………………….
………………….
…………………
I think

    Sometimes prayers are answered but we don't realize it...me for one, I didn't recognize that my prayer was answered until about 5 years after the fact...guess getting answers and knowing you got an answer takes time...

    Sometimes the answer is "No" and sometimes the answer to my prayer is Silence and I get to be still ... smile ... and then, some prayers have been answered by a sunset or the gleam in a child's eye ... more than one way to know the Spirit of the Universe. Great write here, James ... obviously you got me going ... LOL ... love the blank lines ... very clever and different to end it the way you did.

    James, I could feel your frustration in this intriguing poem. Just remember, God often takes his time in answering our prayers. And, sometimes, we don't get the answer we wanted. But I do believe God has a plan and reads his "mail." Love this, Carolyn
