Sacred Stone


We can't be blamed
for wanting God,
asking forgiveness
of our sin,
wondering
just where we're going,
not really sure
where we've been.
Every night,
millions of prayers
are offered up
on bended knee,
whispered blindly
into darkness,
in the names
of those
we no longer see,
their dates cut
into sacred stone,
making up
the book of time,
traveling through
eternity.
