My Prayer

“Im standing on the side of the road,
Leaning against my car.
I can look far,
Cars comes by,
But I don’t say hi
Im staring at the sky.
It’s a beautiful sunset
You can still see the mountains.
The sky is orange, gray and blue.
There are a couple of stars,
But there where one
It was the brightest one from them all
And I wondered……………wondered ,
if that was my sign.
I read what I wrote,
And felt something in my throat.
I realized it’s time to pray.”
DEAR GOD 
PLEASE FORGIVE ME FROM ALL MY SINS.
PLEASE SAVE ME FROM THIS.
HOLD YOUR ARMS AROUND ME.
PLEASE LEAD ME ALL THE WAY.
“I felt this warm feeling around my body,
And I knew HE was waiting for this.
My smile came back,
This is my second whack.


Looking up at the dark sky
Looking at that bright light.
And all I could say was”
THANK YOU LORD
AMEN
