Good Stuff


Why did You give me a heart to care,
Only to take pleasure in watching me broken?
Why did You give me ears
That ache at words spoken?
Why the eyes that see corruption
Or hands that only feel pain?
A nose that smells the stank
Of a mind draped with stain?
The desire to do right
Only to reap so much wrong?
A life so unfavorable
That I feel I don't belong?
The plentiful rotten fruit
Fallen only from a corruptible tree?
Inner passion within
Which leads to misery?
A yearning and desire
That can never be satisfied.
A soul of sadness
Blackened and tried?
These thoughts elude me
As I look into the sky.
But still I seek answers.
Lord, tell me why.

your faith in God is tested. So stsy strong and God Bless you.

Gary this poem is beautiful not just by the words written but most importantly what the last line means. No matter how many times I've stumbled in my life, God knows
I've walked through fire at times. One thing never changed. Whether it's why, or I'm sorry, help me or I love you and thank you, I still pray. Answers come in his time.
The last line means to me, there's always hope.

God Bless

Don't ask the Lord why when things go wrong, if you have not been a believer of His when everything was going well. Non-believers have the tendency to blame everything on God when things fall apart. Suddenly... they would believe there is a God who is punishing them. Why??

No one ordains us with a bad life. We all make of life as we see it. I see that life is good and I love making the best of it.

A true cry from the heart...will we ever know what drives some to see the world with darkened eyes?
If this is from your life now...I send you peace of soul.
An excellent poem....

Wow Gary, this must have too an act of courage to write these poetic sediments. You expressed yourself all too well. If your referencing a girl friend or a wife I can tell you that my first wife all to often made me feel broken. Sadly she died of cancer and then I fell apart. I prayed for a wife again after about a year and wrote all the qualities I wanted in her on paper and my prayer partners all prayed for her to come soon. One important thing I asked besides wanting an equally-yoked Christian was to have a new family of in-laws that I could call family. This is so important because you do marry the family, like it or not. The results have been very gratifying and it made all the difference in the world.

Peace be with you,

John Michael
