Lost

Source


Alone she walks, finding her place among the streets. Alone she walks on poisoned feet. The pain in her heart won't go away. She stands on a bridge and looks down into the water and she cries. A little piece dies. She can't escape the demons that have her. Will she awaken in a pool of her own blood? Will she escape to the One who is Love?

I watch her from afar and say a silent prayer for her. I see her scars as she walks away and-- for a moment--I am stirred. She won't take my hand. She can't remember the One she used to love. The One who shines down Light from Above.

Help her through this! She blasphemes you now with the shake of her fist. She can't grasp just who You are. She can't grasp just who she is. Her mind is a locked gate, like her heart. But I have faith! You have done greater things! She will come crawling to You on scabby knees. The Love from Above.

I love this poem. Deep and rich. I was only disappointed in one part - when it ended.

Well done!

Jinny, I'm so happy you were touched by this poem. Thanks for your kind comment!

One more time I am moved by another one of your writings. How many times have we found ourselves in this place and have felt lost. Many ignore the Light of The Almighty and find it in a time of despair, but how much harder it is for those who have met Him and simply forget the way or are too proud or too hurt to seek Him.

This is beautiful and deep. Thank you.

Admiral and Cats, thank you very much for your kind words. I'm always nervous posting more preachy poems, but I'm glad you were able to connect with the underlying emotion. I appreciate your reads and your comments!

Hello PDXKarokeGuy..your concern and vigilence over the woman is touching and your desire that she find God is inspiring..and hopeful. She has strayed but, God willing, she will return to her former self while recognizing "The Love from Above." Very interesting, beautiful as well as voted UP and useful.

Thank you, housewife. I enjoy it. It's my favorite medium of communication, at least artistically.

Ladyjojo, I couldn't agree more. I makes me sad to see people walking the road of death, no matter the cause. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

This was very nice and so many of these people i see daily. Heading down to a road of death that they themselves doesn't know the end and the Master calls them and they refuse to answer His calls. So sad may God keep us along the way......
