God Please Help Me Understand- Poem

Updated on April 11, 2012

Please Help Me Understand

Oh God,please help me understand

just make me understand

The hurt the anger

the rage in my heart

the words i said,unplanned.

I'd take them back if i could

but, would it matter?

would it do any good?

The words I chose were empty

no meaning to them at all

and now my days are meaningless

how much further will I fall?

No one seems to care

or even want to try

my world just seems so empty

I just want to say goodbye

can I give up, like my family did?

can i turn and walk away?

Please help me to get through this

please help me find a way.

    Words let loose can get us in a lot of trouble, can't they? Words are something that you can never really take back,even if you try, because they remain as a voice in our memory. Voted up and beautiful!

    THANK YOU! Seems so long ago-what a difference a day makes--or a lot of years..

    Yes... take them back... that's the start and you shouldn't not do it because it will only compound the mistake. You can be the person you want to be right now but the best way to do it is to make amends and admit what you did. They may not forgive you but if you mean what you say then you will have done the right thing. You want people to remember what you did and in a year's time they will see who you are: which is the person who apologized; not the person who gave up to the dark side...
