A Prayer Goes Out - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



It has been done

Your prayers have been answered

And

Now

Will others benefit

From the effects

Of the words offered

This day

In kindness

For ones fellows

The words go out

Into the collective

As waves upon the sea

Waves that carry

Messages

Far and wide

Some will be aware

And

Accept this gift

Others

Will not

As the prayer passes by

To find another

Willing

To accept this gift

Given freely

To all with

The courage

To change

Behaviors

And

Attitudes

Even their

Dreams

In the hope

Of the creation

Of a human community

Filled with

Light hearted

Kind

And

Compassionate

Beings

With the ability

To cooperate

And build

A just

And

Beauty filled society

In which

Decisions stem

From the heart

In the interest of others

Rather

Than

From self

Which only acts in

The interest

Of itself

Programed

For self survival

Not for the survival  of groups

Now

Waves go out

That will carry

Others

To the destination

Of their hearts

From where

Vibrant

And

Joyous living

Will begin

Anew

In the future

That was created

By

The dreams of a few

Carried upon the waves

Of the Collective Consciousneess

Over countless centuries

Of time

Until enough

Realize

Yes

Realize

This can be done

And

So will it be

In time

M.N. Hopkins

The word self denotes, ego.  In my view it is a tool or machine created as an aid that has become a tyrant believing it is a god.
