A Million Candles Burning

We all send up our signals
To the upper light
From hell. We all were born here,
All came of age here,

Those of us who are cheerful
And those of us who despair.
So why offer prayers?

We depend on metaphors
Our bodies can understand.
We coined the terms “middle Earth,”
“Heaven,” “Hell” for them.

We pray to not sink lower,
We pray to ascend.
