While Praying, I am Reminded


WHILE PRAYING for the world,
I am reminded
of someone
I need to make peace with.

And what does it say,
if while offering your gift,
you remember?
To first go and be reconciled.

I prefer to stay and pray,
but from the moment I get the reminder
all my words ring hollow.
