One Last Prayer
The Mayan Calendar, is rhyming verse
If this world should end before Christmas Day
as the Mayan “experts” all seem to say,
then I’d like to atone for some things we’ve done
and here’s what I truly pray.
That we open our hearts as well as our minds
for together they form this tie that binds
and brings us together, no matter the weather,
as our cosmos slowly aligns.
That religions come forth to bury their axes
and watch as humanity suddenly relaxes
to the point of redemption for past predilections,
through emails, tweets and faxes.
That the corporate world will come to conclusion
a sustainable system is not a delusion
but a required protocol for the good of us all
as our planet moves closer to fusion.
That societies too should seek not justice
for it only brings hatred to forever encrust us
making it likely we’ll be praying contritely
for forgiveness from those who entrust us.
That my fellow travelers of this road we’re on
truly find happiness before it is gone
to help change our fate before it’s too late
and leave it better for all of our spawn.
That you’re not so horribly jaded
that living in your means is too overrated
and “By hawking the farm, we’re not doin’ any harm.”
instead of freeing our minds constipated.
That our children’s’ children and all those beyond
will be proud of the way that we managed to bond
through the bitterness & fears, blood, sweat and tears
to find compassion our true magic wand.
It’ll take much conviction, I have little doubt
for all to seek really what life’s all about.
To evolve our way of being to a better way of seeing
as we learn to give our egos less clout.
That you’re forever able to find happiness inside
that part of you where love does abide.
That we all do unto others like sisters and brothers
and may we please continue this ride?
