objecting to your prayers feels like
I am rejecting your love,
your caring, your helping me
get past a difficult time. I am grateful
for you and that you care and that you love
or care about me.
yet, if you really care
look at me—touch me,
talk to me. a hug is okay.
but please. must I accept that you will
shoot a quick message to your almighty
who will then correct or change the cold facts
I now face? please stop denying reality
and pretending your prayers
make a difference or change anything.
they do not!
the only miracles are those events
science, money and power create.
with love and appreciation,
