Fold my hands in prayer

I can do without religion, leave that space blank.
But I need prayer.
I need to fill that space.

How do you mourn without prayer?
How do you ask for forgiveness?

Whose hand do you hold when there is no other hand?

And who do I thank
when I want to go down on my knees and thank
For the miracles, the justice, the gifts, the love.

Its in me,
its in me,
its in me, alright

  1. Thank you for your comment. That mandala goes very deep for me. I love the prayer above which seems also in the spirit of the mandala, no?

    "I can do without religion,[…] But I need prayer."How true this is. I'm suspicious of religion (it has separated people more often than it has united) but prayer is our common need. All our languages flow together into a single river of words and wish to end into the same sea of love and health.

    Prayer is useless, thanking actual people, not so much.
