A Silent Prayer for the Last of Us

A Silent Prayer for the Last of Us
By Jeff Lee




A silent prayer for the last of us

The few who have not yet been freed

A silent prayer for the last of us

Those few that are blind to the things they will not see

A silent prayer for the last of us

Whose numbers are dwindling still

A silent prayer for the last of us

Who may yet push back from life’s table with bellies filled

A silent prayer for the last of us

The ones still enshrouded in pain

A silent prayer for the last of us

The ones who have forgotten how to make it back home again

A silent prayer for the last of us

Those shackled by the doubts of their mind

A silent prayer for the last of us

Who will not are not looking for what they need to find

A silent prayer for the last of us

Who brake under the pressure like falling rocks

A silent prayer for the last of us

Who scream out in pain for relief but lack voices with which they must talk

A silent prayer for the last of us

Those burning with longing for the land of honey and cream

A silent prayer for the last of us

The few that are tormented so much they feel pain even while they dream

A silent prayer for the last of us

Who need only be shown the way

A silent pray for the last of us

Who once awakened will continue this pray some day
