My Thoughts And Prayers (An Original Poem)

Lord remind me what it means when you say..
"to stand up, you must first get on your knees"
But what happens when these thoughts & prayers become a rebound
Something we say but not actually carry out..

My thoughts and prayers sounds so redundant
There IS power in prayer, I'm sure of it..

But can your prayers be synonymous to the steps you take
Can we stop avoiding the necessary actions
And stand up to these negative transactions
that society charges us with

Trayvon Martion murdered..
"my thoughts & prayers"

17 students lost their lives..
"my thoughts & prayers"...

Every 40 secs a teen commits suicide..
"my thoughts & prayers"

I'm at fault, its as if this phrase "My thoughts and prayers" has become my default...
