Not So Private Prays

Written by: verlecia fields

not so private prays
are left to the fragile 
usage of unlawful bugs 
that settle in the community of citizens 
who believe they are fighting to keep 
there bodies and minds clean
from the unclean 

come good poet 
and lend me your ear 
for good whispers are 
hardest to find?

for in my civil heart 
there are doors, to my mind
and in myself i have found a dumb slave
who shouts without sound and cries to many tears

must i beat this horse again and again 
must i, must i 

because your just, as in the dark, as I!
