The worst word and the worst prayer ever.

When I go to church,
And I say,
Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name.
Does it make it okay?
When I swear on the bible,
Saying that I'd never hurt you.
But then I hurt you the very worst way.
If I say sorry,
Does it make it okay?
If I go to church every Sunday,
And pray every night.
Saying thank you for all I have,
And that I'm sorry for all my sins.
If I do the same things the next day,
Does it make it okay?
Does sorry really mean something?
Is saying sorry doing something?
Or is it just a word?
A word used to fix someone's behavior.
So, all I have to do is say one simple word,
And I have redeemed myself?
Is a memorized prayer doing something?
A bunch of words that have been imprinted into my mind.
Are they something that will forgive all of my sins?
Is a punishment going to make it all better?
Teach you a lesson?
Maybe, sorry is the worst word out there.
And just maybe, "Our Father who art in heaven" is the worst prayer out there.
Because words alone don't make it okay.

  1. You're right, even though I never thought about it. Just saying something doesn't make it true.

    P.S. Get ready for your care package!


I would love to hear your opinion, do share.
