The Prodigal Child/a poem

Updated on June 23, 2013

The Prodigal Child

The Prodigal Child

My heart is breaking and I don’t know why, and so many tears pour from my eyes,

I feel such pain and I hurt inside, the anguish is impossible for me to hide,

The wounds are open and I slowly bleed, I don’t have the strength I desperately need.

I caused this trauma and now I ache, I face the torment each moment I wake.

I thought I was strong, but im so very weak, I am hopelessness at its highest peak.

I found the devil when I knocked on his door, I was beaten and bruised and fell to the floor.

I disobeyed God but he carries me anyway, a prodigal child that had to learn the hard way,

Theresa Bauserman

      The place for parking our reflection where the prodigal son is concerned, is remembering that he did, indeed, come home.

      Yes He does. He is there for us through the thick and thin and carries us when we need it most. Well said. Voted up

      Hello! I thought this was a sad poem because of the beginning, but at the same time, I thought it was beautiful because of the strength that seemed to shine through at the end. I voted it up!
