Thoughts & Prayers

You are in my thoughts

for whatever it’s worth and

I said a prayer

for you today, though I can’t

say anyone listened, they


never listen. I

hope to Christ and Buddha and

Marx and to the sharks

and turtles and monk seals that

you heal, that you can steal more


days and months and years.

A lot more years. I’m sorry

that all I can give

is thoughts and tears, and my faith

is in medicine, not God.


I’ll light a candle

but it’s a facade, this one’s

up to the doctors

and up to you, and maybe

a four leaf clover or two.


About soitgoes1984

I was born and raised on land stolen from the Pocumtuc. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Pacific ocean, on land that was stolen more recently, from the Hawaiians. I am addict, struggling to kick the habit of fossil fuel. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.
