The Atheist’s Prayer, 2010

Dear God, if you’re there,
father if you care,
turn your ear to me.
I’ve been a man
without a plan
for far too long, you see.
I did bad things
and had bad dreams
I longed to see the light.

If you could find it in your heart
to let me live tonight
I’ll try as hard as I can try
and maybe as the time goes by
I might alas atone,
but please don’t close the book on me,
there’s too much to read on.

There’s love in me,
that’s real, that’s true,
and if you’re there you see it too.
I might be a worthless slave
a nameless face
no last name grave
but there is good in me.
Give it time
and line by line
I’m sure that it might grow,
but if I die, and go to hell,
the reasons I will know.

Forgive me if you can
and please,
forgive as well my family,
Galilee, Nirvana too,
who I’m sure will rest with you.

I only long to see,
though know,
with much sorrow,
I am a Nobody,
but my prayer is sincere
and I hope that you draw near,
I’m lost in life and know I’ll die,
With no way to say goodbye.
