Another piece of my soul falls to the ground
Withering under a deluge of acid rain
So I turn my face to the moon, eyes joining the stars
I will my heart to the heavens, wishing for God’s grace
But prayers sent heavenward are prayers wasted it seems
No water, no earth, no wind, no fire
Can pull from the heavens to my face
What I request in my skyward gaze.

I personally find it inspiring to see the listings with their images and opening lines- almost as inspiring as seeing the support on each one!
