Prayers to None

Written by: Samir Georges

Chin to chest
hand in hand rests,
my prayers to none
muttered to myself,

lo the answers lay
here within my palms,
lo the answers wait
for this hope’s breath and life,
to unfold these hands in blooming faith
and reveal the scripture on my palms
these truths bestowed unto me
up from my heart’s beleaguered toil,

and so my faith is found
in nothing but myself
and these hands that hold themselves.
