PRAYER, by Langston Hughes

Gather up
In the arms of your pity
The sick, the depraved,
The desperate, the tired,
All the scum
Of our weary city

Gather up
in the arms of your pity.
Gather up
In the arms of your love -
Those who expect
No love from above.

Meme is bordered by a thicker black-line border on the outer edge and a thinner black-line border just to the inside of the thicker one.
