R.S. Mallari

Hear My Prayer


Grant me Oh Lord
Patience so I could bear,
Tolerate my self-righteous friend

Provide me Oh Lord
With wisdom to understand,
Abide his conceited ways

Keep me safe Oh Lord
Guard me against the people
He offended and fought with

Most of all Oh Lord
I beseech and beg you
Don’t take your eyes off me

If you do Oh Lord
I will be asking for forgiveness
And praying for the soul of my
Departed, dear friend.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.

I see you made some changes around here. Very nice. I had to re-read this again and now I see what you mean with the humor. The style you wrote this in, cleverly disguises it though. Too busy focusing on the Lord I guess. I love it even more this time around.

Through poetry we can inspire others, we can make someone smile and words can make others cry be it of joy or sadness.
