Repent

In clips and slips the beads descend,
Singing whispered prayers' no end,
Messages floating on the wind,
Forgiveness for all who sinned.

But forgiveness comes one by one
And sometimes there can be none.
My prayers oft walk a silent floor,
Where echoes' echo no more.

In the power of prayer I swear,
Even though the beads do wear
And the string grows thinner each day,
As my fingers wrinkle grey.

I ask you pray, the soul of man,
Those that can't and those that can.
Pay the fee whatever the toll,
Maybe it will save, one soul.

Perhaps that soul may be your own,
Or a friend that lives alone.

Nice thought here! I liked it. Never under estimate the power of prayer.

My goodness, but you are talented. You weave your words so well. One question - how do you know He's really listening?

Thank you all for the response and to Severn
my answer would be in an old Haikoo I once wrote.
In the beginning
God created the end and
We cannot change it.
Thank you again.

Dear Severn,
My answer is can you ask to be born?
And no matter how we extend life
we all must pass.
To me and the best of my thinking,
God is change.
And the only thing in the world that does not change is change itself.
So I say to you never doubt the power of God.

Ok, Ok - I believe in God, I just don't like Him much. I think, and I hope I don't offend, that He is impossible to fathom, and thereby makes it hard for us to get close to Him. (I've just read your poem again - it reminds me of a psalm)

Dear Severn,
I'm not trying to make a believer of you but
everything does change and i hope for you for the better. *L*

But forgiveness comes one by one
And sometimes there can be none.
My prayers oft walk a silent floor,
Where echoes' echo no more.


It's kind of all about personal accountability ~ to ourselves and others.

Good poem.  

Thank you.
