My thoughts

To Pray

Now that I am older

I understand what it truly means to have faith in something or someone

even when every fiber in your body says otherwise.

I understand now what it means to be strong

not because I have ripped out muscles or lethal defensive skills,

but rather when things looked bleak

I somehow withstood it because I’ve seen my mother withstood it.

I understand now what it means to pray

not just kneeling down but sincerely believing.

          It is when we are at our lowest

that somehow we come out at our highest.

I don’t need to show the world how pious I am

or subscribe to a group mindset

because I am my own witness,

and I hold myself accountable for whatever I do.
