Painful Prayers

The words
Thoughts
Tears
I pray
Finally
See light of day

As they fall
Cascade
Flow
My aching heart
Begins to grow

Grow
Stretch
Tear
Heal
Scars to show
Loves tight seal

Sealed
Held
Treasured
Found
Truth revealed
Lessons profound

Prayers of pain
Relief
Grief
Necessary
Foster belief

Thankfulness
Lined with love
Gifts received
From up above

Painful prayers
Hopes
Dreams
You already know
All my extremes

Soul Scroll, Audio Clip

Poetry is meant to be read aloud.

When you read it aloud, it lets you hear the music within the words and brings to life the writer’s vision in a more complete way. So, I will add audio clips for a few of my pieces. I hope you enjoy.

To read my original post featuring this poem, visit Soul Scroll.

Let me know what you think. I am by no means a professional reader. I hope to grow from this exercise.
