A Small Prayer

 

A prayer for joy,

sunshine and happiness in lives

constructive thoughts making progress

and defeating negativity

 

A prayer for the beauty of nature

to stay intact and teach the value of life

not lashing out of control

with their boundless energy

and washing away the world

in their angry sojourn

 

A prayer for peace

and warmth around

The Old Library

 

The creaky staircase,

which has not seen paint in years

and the dark path

on which powerful eyes stumble

lead to an old library

filled with ancient books,

rats feed on the countless

pages of knowledge and entertainment,

authors valued centuries ago

lie torn amongst

mice, bugs and roaches

in a dusty old building
