prayers hanging from heaven

I have sent a lot
of prayers
up there

over the years
many prayers did not
seem to be answered
I am glad they weren’t

many prayers
were self-centered
and would have been
destructive
to me

those prayers were answered
with silence . . .
another word for no
or not now

looking over the years
the yes prayers
worked for my good
the others would have
taken me the wrong path

life has been good

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
