To be a sinner, I'd have to believe in the saints.

I don't believe in your God or your devil,

But you can pray for me anyway.

.

If it makes you feel better,

That's what I believe in.

Can't say I'm a sinner if I don't believe in

your version for forever.

.

No one's every prayed for me,

Prayed for something other than my "sins."

No one's ever asked either, you see.

.

So I'm thrown,

But, yes, you may.

Your beliefs are not my own,

But I believe in positive energy anyway.

.

To be a sinner, I'd have to believe in your God.

So why do you want to pray?

I know in your eyes that my ways are wrong.

.

Yes, you may pray for me.

I'll talk to the earth; you talk to the sky.

Maybe the prayers are what I need.

.

I know you know that I don't believe.

Yet, I thank you…

I thank you for saying a prayer for me.
