Wow! Breathtaking poem.

It consists of only 5 lines, but somehow it's extremely powerful. Maybe it's the way one has to pause after useless, because then there's a gap between the lines, and that naturally makes you stop for a few seconds before you read on, and in these few seconds you have time to think and wonder 'what will happen now?' It makes you anxious. And with that tight feeling in you gut you read on, and somehow the word 'forgiveness' is extremely harsh and hard, it is like a blow. You can hurt someone pretty badly by denying them your forgiveness...

So he basically asked a person to pray to him after he said prayers are useless. It's either hypocritical, or it's his way to say your wish will not happen no matter what.

Hey, I've been in comment spree on your poems for some times, please don't mind me :D

-To pray and wish are two totally different things- But I think your right about the first one.

This is a very interesting poem. I love how it's short, but meaningful.

Daww. :'(

I believe God answers all prayers --
when the time is right.

(Before that, you have to put up with your challenges because they were given to you for a reason)

But then, my outlook on life is often very positive, and not everyone is religious. :XD:
