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?
