To pray…

Updated: Mar 20, 2022

To pray.

To make pyrohy - and to pray.

To weave nets - and to pray.

To call family and friends for the hundredth time - and to pray.

To go down into basements - and to pray.

To press against supporting walls - and to pray.

To sleep with clothes on - and to pray.

To read bad news - and to pray.

To read good news - and to pray.

To laugh at war jokes - and to pray.

To cry in pain for the killed - and to pray.

To be disciplined - and to pray.

To be grateful for the sunrise - and to pray.

To collect food and medicine for refugees - and to pray.

Because to pray is to become strong.

To become invincible.

To become superheroes.

War devours life, serenity, peaceful things. So we don't have to give also our despair to the war. Not getting one.

To wash hair, to wear clean clothes, to have tea in the evening, to clean the house, not forgetting to eat, to rub pets behind the ears, to hug people, not getting annoyed at stupid things, to look at the sky - and to pray.
