Prayer to the Gods


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.



Tamara Yancosky 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.
