How Do You Pray

How do you pray? Do you pray for just yourself? Do you pray for every thought? You can every think? Do you take a moment to pray for others? Do you give praise when you pray?

Our Choices

We all think of those questions, Of what should we have done, In this situation or that, Of that experience or another, We blame our past, Blame our lack of something, Or another, Blame the history, That came before us, Instead of focusing on today, Focusing on the future, We blame how someone has treated us, Or the sort of hand we are dealt, Instead of looking within, Instead of looking at ourselves, Our past can only be a part of us so much, Our history can only be there, It is only there for us to learn, Learn from those that came before us, We cannot just be hurtful, We cannot just be mean, We need to realize this at this moment, That what we should have done, Is more of what should we do now, We can keep blaming one another, Blaming this person, Or that, This hurt, Or that hurt, Or rise above it all, We can make this choice, Of our own free will, We can choose to be this way, Or choose to be that way, We can cho
