I Pray / by Katie Alyce

I pray I learn to forgive, as I pray for forgiveness. I pray that I can release the demons that are memories that haunt me. I pray that when I dream it is about things of my future, and not of my past. I pray that I gain control of my emotions. I pray that I see through disguised intentions. I pray that I do not become dark, and evil due to pain. I pray to not desire revenge. I pray that one day my love will be understood and not twisted. I pray for the people I despise, because I am human and I can empathize with your pain as well. I pray for the neglect people have felt. I pray for the betrayal people have felt. I pray that we heal. I pray that my own ill intentions will be progressive, and not reacquainted. I pray that all of our silent critiques of ourselves come to light. I pray that we can be the best example possible. Hurt people love to hurt people. I pray that we overcome that notion. I pray for strength and guidance. I pray to mean what I say and live by it. I pray that you find the ability to look outside of yourself. I pray that you find the ability to let your exhausted defenses rest, and be trusting. I pray you practice and experience compassion. I pray that you cleanse your sins. I pray that we transcend. I pray to release my guilt, insecurities, and grudges. I pray for spiritual freedom. I pray to forgive, I pray for forgiveness...
