“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

with your eyes shut tight

and the book held close

you walk the halls

and appear to most

a religious fool

an overzealous man

but you keep on walking

and you let them stare

your lips may move

but no words come out

and they all wonder

what you pray about

and they hope the God

they don’t believe in

will listen if you’re

praying for them

you sit outside

and watch them leaving

and listen to their

silent suffering

and they laugh at you

to hide the trembling

and they whisper

so you cannot hear them

your lips may move

but no words come out

and they all wonder

what you pray about

and they hope the God

they don’t believe in

will listen if you’re

praying for them

Safety Precautions

Everyone knows the sky can be predicted

And the strangeness of a stranger can disappear

And the taste of a whisper upon your lips

Is bittersweet like a promise that binds a sin

You can always tell a man

By the contents of the briefcase in his hand

Or the weapon in his pocket

He pretends to hold but you know he doesn’t have

But what you see has nothing to do

With a secret to sell or defiance of utmost truth

Because all you need are safety precautions

As you do your time in a dangerous atmosphere
