My Silent Prayer

My silent prayer
is one of love
bestowed on all
from God above

That love will win
and peace unite
for all to live
as is our right

For no more hunger
a lot less pain
acceptance of all
and way less strain

An end to war
the vanquish of hate
a roof over all
food on every plate

Where compassion and kindness
flow freely from all
where disrespect disappears
as we heed the call

To love and forgive
be an example of good
where living freely
is clearly understood

That my family and friends
from all walks of life
are happy and healthy
without any strife

That the earth will heal
and we can clean the air
all of this and more
is my silent prayer.
