Birthday Punches

A day much like any other
Rising and living just the same
Nothing different
Nothing changed
Yet greeted by wishes
And unexpected greetings
And half-hearted songs sung by half-awake teens
And candy and cards
These things that visit once a year
Placed up as a milestone
A marker of what is to come
A special day for a single soul
Another day for the world
Celebrated as another year of life
One minute to another
Makes all the difference
Happy Birthday

Or seek the shadows

Holds the key to your

Prayers of the Night

Lord, deliver me from evil

Lord, deliver my enemies
into my hand

Protect me from those
who wish me harm
and guard me from the wicked

That I may be the swift bearer
of your divine vengeance

Grant me courage and strength
Be my shield

And bind thine Spirit into my blade
That I may send their eternal souls
down to Hell

I ask this through you
Almighty God

Grant me this
Almighty God
