Prayer to the Gods

Jon was full of life
He greets everyone with delight
You wouldn't see his actual fright

He wanted to die
He smiles with a lie
And every night he cries

A prayer to the Gods

He's tired of facing against all the odds

He used to be a man known of courage

Now he's a man of change

He laughs and jokes but that was an act

A Prayer to the Gods
Take heed in his prayer

Take a look at his despair
He kneel down to his dark room
with a little lamp and a paring knife

Praying to the Gods,
"save me, save me", he cries

And the lamp lights out.

BBYCGN from Uninhabited Regions on September 22, 2018:

There is only One God whom I pray to, and He answers my prayers, through Jesus Christ. I will pray for you, if you’d like.

Another powerful and deeply poignant poem.

Thank you for sharing your words with us.

I have another site, as well, where I, and my niece, write a lot about personal experiences with Narcissists.

You will find the site on my Homepage Icon on the front page of my Hubpage.
