Prayer Poem

Prayer For Peace For My Children

I recently left my girlfriend because she was very abusive and addicted-struggling with drugs. We have two beautiful children that are unfortunately in the middle of this mess. I am care-giver for the kids. I don't want to fight anymore; I only want peace. I want her to get better. I couldn't change her; I tried for two years and failed. My children mean more to me than the sun, the moon, and all the stars in the sky, and they shouldn't bear the weight of that pain and abuse. Thank you, Ryan

A Sleepless Night's Poem

My heart weighs heavy under all this stress,
I can't help but blame you for this messed up mess.
Anger, sadness, resentment, hate,
I pray at night for the Lord to take.
Take all my pain and help me fight,
Help me try to do what's right.
I know you're hurting, I know you're sad,
There's more to this than all that bad.
I hope you know this much is true:
I never meant to hurt you.
This pain you see,
It's killing me,
Like a disease without a cure.
This helplessness I must endure.
For there is light beyond this dark,
All that's needed is a spark.
Be true, be strong,
I hope the best,
I pray for peace, not unrest.
