Shaping Our Prayers

100_1053

It’s when are backs are against the wall, as the concrete grinds

into the skin of our backs, and we behold our cities

on fire, the desolation of generations

ruining the hope of many, that we truly

learn how to shape our prayers,

remembering how

the ancient rivers ran,

the ones

we used to know

so well.
