A Prayer for Peace

One may hasten to believe that
Prayer is cure for every ill that
Humanity might sore conceive, a
Magic panacea pill.
 
One my listen to the news
With wonder and bewilderment,
Knowing that such travesty
Could never have been heaven-sent.
 
One may walk a pious path
Professing reverence as a creed while
Behind a mask, on bended knee,
Praying only in self-serving need.
 
One may make a passionate plea
For all who stand in desperate need,
Victims of misfortune or
Another hungry mouth to feed.
 
One may pray an end to wars,
May violence forever cease.
If granted an answer to just one prayer,
Let it be a prayer for peace
