Just pray

Why do you pray not pray? 

Do  you desire to go astray?

Why do you disobey and refused to pray?

What in this life do you have?

Nothing is here to stay!

The only  way to find peace to pray!

Do not be lost and lonely like stray,

Pray for strength

Pray for peace 

Pray five times a day

It’s the only way to find the path

And stay on the straight way

Pray when in doubt 

Pray went in trouble 

Pray when not in trouble

When worried, in sickness and in health

one must always pray 

It is the only way to keep the demons and devils  at bay 

Just pray night or day 

Just pray
