Unanswered Prayers

I sent a prayer up,
Reply never came down.
May be dreams escaped my sleep,
And the lotto ticket
Just another piece of paper
In the morning.
O’ wait,
I have not checked
The results yet.
The dream can live on
For a few more moments,
But the coffee calls.
Now only if I can leave
The warmth of the bed.
Peace made an exit
When greed entered,
And prayers remained
Unanswered.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. Loved this part, PB:
    “I have not checked

    I sometimes put off checking the news so my dream can live on a little longer.

  2. I just had a wonderful break through with a family situation, but my dream for my country is sadly unfulfilled. Still praying. 😀 Perhaps you can be blessed by the fulfillment of my prayers. We will see before long. Good night and sweet dreams.
