Are You There God?

Drowning in my misery
this life is hell it seems to me
and I don't think I can fight this anymore
Tears of hate of broken hearts
scars from memories they haunt
my existence I plea

God save me
Please
Save me
I don't wanna feel this anymore
God save me
Please
Save me
I can't handle myself anymore
please settle my score

Fighting back the whines of sin
regret my past unthankfulness
I don't want to do this anymore
Scabs from cuts inflicted time
watch the blood drip down my spine
I won't handle this life anymore

God save me
Please
Save me
I don't wanna feel this anymore
God save me
please
save me
I can't handle myself anymore
Please settle my score

Take a knife and scratch my surface
break the skin and see the blackness
it'd be painful I if I could feel it
feeling-less numbness darkness
resides within
break the devil from my existence

God save me
please
can you hear me

God save me
please
Save me
I don't wanna feel this anymore
God save me
Please
Save me
I can't handle myself anymore
end this pain

I continue to question god's existence, this has to be hell. I lie in bed not wanting to move out of it, no motivation, I feel empty, my eyes are hallow can't look into the future only now, all I see is bleakness, darkness my light at the end of the tunnel has closed. There's no way out and yet god won't help me. I wish oh I wish I was brave enough to end it all.

You spoke the words I feel in side. I have been depressed for 21 years. Wonder why God still has me here, as I feel like a third wheel in this life.
