Little Prayers of Belief
By David Williams © 2014
I don’t love you cause you’re good
I don’t love you cause I should
I don’t love you cause it’s easy to do
There’s poetry in you.
I don’t want your love
hand-outs I’m not speaking of
your slant rhyme thoughts in my head
raise the weary and the dead
All I got for relief
Little prayers of belief
Little hopes, held by hand
walking out of no man’s land
forever’s not what it seems
We only come to dream.
Not to live in the promised land,
Lucky enough, for this—while we can.
