You look up as you pray,
It's entirely natural, God-given, you do say,
You feel heart-ache, and even then, do you pray,
Through Windows and walls, you aim into space,
God is up there you say, somewhere in space entirely, you do state
And when hardship comes, should he not answer,
You think it true, that prayers sometimes bounce,
That the walls throw them off,
That windows, Mirrors, and skies reflect them,
That they actually:
...separate you from God.
God is not ...distant... whatever you said
He's there in your thoughts, your too solemn, light prayers,
He's in your atoms, there within the substance of your bed.
As you think, he's the limits of your thoughts,
And as you cry, he's in your tears.
The walls, they cannot reflect your prayers:
Perhaps mimic them, and show them true, or wrong...
No, should God seem distant, should God seem far...
It is either a trial, to teach you to yearn,
Else, in truth, you're ignoring, or preventing his answer, his deified aid, or else, it's coming, and perhaps different in form ...than thought,
You know not yet, but sin blocks prayer,
God isn't just up there, he's here, in your soul.
To know him, is to understand your role
Therefore, fear not, he's there as you roll, and toll
If God hasn't answered, it's because of his reason for you,
That is your blueprint purpose, his plan for you too,
His every moment, secret plan for you too, we call now ...your soul!
It connects you to me, and him as well, see
Don't be silly, God's with you even now,
And as you pray, sending rays into space, he oft joins you, perhaps cause it's done...
And it's him you sent into space,
To rest on the sun, the moon, and green alien suns!
He's with us right now, and men throughout all time,
His is the remains of our greatness,
He's even crying in the ruins!
