The Prayer

By Lionel Foo


I asked for peace
And I saw a rainbow:

A promise to ease
The pain and heavy blow
Dealt in life’s race

Yet the faceless sky
Turned to a darkened face
With the howling sigh
‘Gainst the raindrops, they pelted;
And soon the rainbow
Could take no more – it melted

I asked for peace–
And I saw another rainbow
