Why Do You Pray?

Why Do You Pray?

written by: Megha Sood



Was is the emptiness in your heart
that made you pray tonight
Was is it the loneliness
which made you look up
in his eyes

Were you looking for ways
to absolve your sins
Was it the dizziness from all the
trials and tribulations in your chaotic life
which swerved your way towards him

Was it the weakness in your heart
which made you kneel
Was it the walled emotions
you wanted to break-in

Was it the feeling of falling
in your abyss of hatred and anger
Was it the bitterness in your heart
which wanted to be spilled out

Was it the world of yours
which was tumbling down
all your dreams and hopes
falling brick by brick

Was it the sharp stabbing pain
in your soul, you wanted to stop
Was it the will to be liberated
to the One, you have been waiting

Was it the feeling of
pumping this hamster wheel
or you just wanted to throw a wrench
in this wheel
What made you pray?
What made you kneel?
