Poem for Islam

While the leaf is busy leaving behind it’s deepest green and welcoming the colors of golden red, we pray

While the sun rises, once again sharing it’s infinite light, we pray

While the moon watches over us, it’s wisdom covering our souls, we pray

While the bombs fall, and flesh is torn again and again, we pray

While evil seems to never have an end, and darkness is all that we can see, we pray

While rainbows paint themselves all over our skies, we pray

While children laugh and share their joy with one another, with no worries about what tomorrow will bring, we pray

While life runs past us, never stopping to take us by the hand, we pray

And while death comes to take away all that we have ever known, we pray

For as God is eternal, so is our prayer

Amen
