I Pray

I pray for the day

When you realize

Your deep hatred

Has ruined your peace.

I pray for the day

When you see past your eyes

And find the human

Underneath your derision.

I pray for the day

When you look in the mirror

And know the pain etched

In the lines in your face

Were caused by you.

I pray for the day

When you put down your cross

And decide to stop

Nailing me to mine.

I pray for the day

When you and I can talk

And you know who I am

Not who you think I should be.

I pray for the day

And sometimes

My prayers are answered.
