The Nun

It must be tough to be a Nun

Depending on ‘The Only One’

Hoping that he will hear your prayers

Despite the taunts of the naysayers

 

To wish and hope with every fiber

With every sense that is inside her

When as a fact of her job’s nature

Is to see it as her only savor

 

It can’t be any other way to her

Only God and Jesus, they can cure

To think otherwise is sacrilege true

And yet still she does her job for you

 

Sadly she says many more prayers

An absolute sign that she really cares

More than anyone else that you know

With results that will never show

 

How depressing it must be,

To keep trying and never see

While children cry with ample cause

Having given up in Santa Claus

 

She had to justify and rationalize,

There’s some place where he must have eyes

Even though not all prayers are answered

With Godly ears surely some must be heard

 

To grant them a wish, one endlessly told

It is the truth, and is never old

But in Godliness, he must reply

Yet they do not see this with their eyes.

 

So they spend their lives in recollection

On bended knees in silent reflection

Having their faith tested every day

But without being able to finally say

 

That it is all hope, with no observable truth

Ritual, tradition and an old temple booth

Only the structure to encourage a cure

But with prayers and wishes , one can never be sure!
