Questioning Prayers

From time to time, a soul is shaken into questioning things even convictions firmly held.

Questioning Prayers
by Michael Romani

Questioning prayers
Questioning the Divine
Caught in emotional snares
Laid like cerebral landmines

Poems to all its owed
To dreams long since sold
No longer seeking the infinite
Satisfied by the finite

Miracles of daily blessing
But we still keep on guessing
As to what all of this means
Doing what we must to keep our dreams

Unified in the one cause
Resolved in our universal laws
Reliance on a God of numbers
We die to ourselves as we slumber

Passion burns like sacred fire
While our souls join and compare
Forced to bend in our responsibility
We find ourselves scarred beyond all capability
