That I Will Never Abandon My Faith- A Poem

That I Will Never Abandon My Faith

Life has its ups, life has its downs

Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I frown.


I try so hard to focus on the good

Like I know you surely would.


But right now I can only think of the bad,

Only think about things that make me sad.


I am starting to feel like I'm not strong,

That everything I do is just so wrong.


All I can think to do is cry

And why bother to even try?


I've tried so hard, you know I usually do

But now I feel like I can't make it through.


There are obsticles blocking my way

Instead of fighting, I wish to runaway.


I know they are nothing compared to what you faced

And I know instead of loosing hope, I need to have faith.


But God, faith seems to have left my heart

As slowly things fall apart.


So right now I have a few words to say

As I tell my little prayer today.


Give me courage to carry on and make it past

These harsh times surely aren't meant to last.


Help me to find a way around the stones on my road

For I'll have another story that surely could be told.


Another time you've helped me carry on,

Another time I reached further and beyond.


Last but not least, I do pray

That I will never abandon my faith.

very well said. we all need to believe in our faith and stand by ourselves. We need to trust in what we believe in and know that it's right for us.

This is nice, and its very powerful that you want to hold on to faith no matter what.

What i always say to people is that their has to be a balance. You wouldn't know what bad felt like if you hadn't experienced the good. Think back to those times and you can use it to pull you forward into a happier time.

Cresentmoon, thank you for this poem. It is like you have been inside of my husband's life right now and all that he is going through. He asked me to copy this out for him. It seems like struggle after struggle for him. He deals with some of the same things you deal with, bi-polar/schizophrenic.
