Dear Lord - A Poem

Source

Dear Lord

Swirling colors of red, black and even gray

Should tell you clearly that I'm not okay.


I can hear them old voices, they are so clear

"Do it, it'll make you better Dear."


And Lord I must say, it's hard to fight

When I feel this angry, far from right.


Anger slowly turns to madness

Which I know will only lead to sadness.


I cannot be this way, not ever again

I cannot face that kind of end.


And because I cannot be this way

I kneel down, look up into the sky and pray.


Lord, I pray that you help me keep my mind straight

Keep my thoughts on the good for I won't meet that fate.


I pray that I will see all the good that you have done,

Not these bad times but instead the fun.


I pray that I remember all of the support

From both the tall people and all of the short.


I pray for help to recall times you've helped me through

To not stray from this path, to only think of you.


And I pray Lord, to just make it through this day

For I can add this moment to the list of times you made it go away.


Of times you've helped me to continue to live

To not take away, but instead to give.


Of times you've helped me make the right decisions

To give me hope and several visions.


Of times you've helped me out up to the morning

For my loved ones won't be in mourning.


Lord, just help me make it through today,

Help this pain to go away.


I will go now, I will let you be

With one last note, thanks for helping me.

This is really one of the best prays to God. I vote it up, beautiful and awesome. If we all people include these lines into our prayer, then I am sure all sadness and despair will not only be removed from our life but also from universe. Great poem.

Thank you everyone very much. SherrieAnne, I have mental illnesses and a physical one. A very bad headache condition. The neurologist told me that I have headaches in the class of migraines that get so bad and they cause my body to basically go into shock. I'll pass out, shake. The best way to describe it is that it looks like a seizure because that's what we thought I was having for so long.

.... a poetic hymn of incredible depth and wisdom and I really do appreciate the spiritual side of you as a writer - perhaps too because I am a big big fan of black gospel music ...... lake erie time ontario canada 9:38am with 2nd cup of coffee and some nice light classical music

p.s. - please check out my buddy TNDERHRT 23 for some really fine poetry, if you're so inclined

Anger, sadness, helplessness, hope. And your last two lines spoke right volumes: Gratitude. Well spoken thoughts, yours. Thank you.
