Prayer

Some fast for days, 
some let go of luxuries
And some suppress their urges, 
For the holy thought

Used to hardship 
people suffer and pray 
Embark on pilgrimages 
To surrender to the lord  

Prayer is a heavy word
Pressing hard on the soul
Moulding your life
To question nothing

And accept everything 
That has tortured you
And turns you into 
An automated being
