Poetry as passion 3

Updated on February 4, 2010

My Prayer

Lord hear my prayer, for I have sinned

but what road ends before it begins

I'm told to have faith and I shall succeed,

my faith never forgotten but still my heart bleeds.

I recieved no response when I've called your name,

I've traveled so far and felt so much pain.

Trying to find answers so I look towards the sky,

screaming I'm lost, asking you why.

I call out in vain, Lord hear my prayer.

My soul is in shame is anyone there.

Please give me strength so that I may proceed, when I am lost

when I am in need.

Where is the light when I cannot see, Lord hear my prayer, please rescue me.

When in despair I'm told to trust you. Life isn't fair but then you always knew.

So Lord hear my prayer for I have sinned but what road ends before it begins.

I wrote this for a dear friend who without warning committed suicide. R.I.P my friend.

      I've asked those questions. I've spoke those lines. I've wanted answers. I wasn't ready for them I suppose. When will I be ready? Will I ever? Does it matter to know? Thank for a beautiful message.
