Lost My Way

Published: April 2011

Oh Lord, oh Lord, with words sincere,
I ask your help - please will you hear?
This world has torn my integrity apart,
and so to you I pour out my heart.

Whenever I ask, you give with no delay.
Yet it's not long till I throw it away.
This is not a wrong, sin or evil.
For even these words shun with retrieval.
Not even darkness can bear to see.
Oh, what has happened to me?

I used to stand against this world so strong
When it was you I leaned upon.
I was so young with circumstances so bad.
With only your refuge I had.
My mother gone, stability and security too,
Leaving me not knowing what to do.
Yet in this time so dark... with light brighter than the sun
You gave it a spark.

Please help me again to keep us friends,
and not to follow this world's trends.
You've given me a gift so good!
And I've broken it like termite wood.
So I ask with shame in a six foot grave.
Can you help fix my life... in which you gave?

Yes this poem touched me, I'm currently feeling very overwhelmed and I've come to a bursting point. I recently just broke down and cried and just kept crying. I've asked God how did I get to this point? How did I let things get out if control? I was searching the internet for help in getting out if this rut and I saw this poem. What a blessing this poem has been time right now.

Thank you

Yes because I can relate to this story, I have had so many fake friends and whoever wrote this poem was trying to make a point and I get it!!!
