I haven’t prayed for you in a while
I thought you wouldn’t need it.
Then today came
To remind me we’re sinners.
And sinners don’t pray – they only demand things.
They go on doing what they do best
They kill dreams, they bury hopes,
they destroy feelings.
It’s been a while since their knees
have touched the ground.
No tear has left their eyes.
They keep on walking, breathing and
Rejoicing in their filth.
All they touch gets – contaminated, dreadful, lost…..
They are sinners……
I am a sinner
They never pray.
I never pray.
I only beg forgiveness.
