let me find my prayer

its all an illusion
the mendicant said
watch n unlearn
the mendicant said

i watch and get ensnared
in my illusions
i unravel my own threads of sanity
trying to unlearn

tell me O monk
why do we die before we can be reborn
why do we hurt so much before we find peace
my karma, how do I make up for thee

i pray for me and for all of thee
i pray for my bhikkhu too
i pray for my destroyer, i pray for the restorer too
let me find my prayer and heal

  1. I Love the line about being reborn before death. I like to view each day as a new life.

    I like your poetry and plan to read more!

    Peace to you
