Grant him the understanding to see the error of his ways,
Grant him the opportunity that he will know better days,
Grant him the knowledge that what he did was not right.
Grant him the vision to go from the darkness into the light.
Grant me the power to see through today,
Grant me the peace that I know is on the way,
Grant me the wisdom to know that I did nothing wrong,
Grant me the strength to keep being strong.
Poem reference from Mask: Grant me – Bisi Akinola-Arutoghor
