body hurts
so does my
head my heart
dont want to
get up just
want to stay
bed with my
head under
the covers
wolves of life
are ragin
outside my
i show my
dont wanna
ill stay here
in bed where
can hide and
not have to
face the world
cant take no
more problems
in my life
shoulders cant
take the weight
on them now
beaten down
and stomped on
and abused
one seems to
care even
God dont hear
health failin
no car job
money my
sucks big time
and God aint
phone line must
be off the
hook or else
too busy
to listen
to me cause
prayers aint
been answered
take it no
more just go
away and
me alone
He dont care
why should you
*This is a fictional write, however,
I have felt the despair depression can

I've been there. TRUST ME. When I
hurt my back...when I had to learn to
live with disability and pain 24/7...
when I was married to a verbally abu-
sive man...when I lost custody of my
one and only child (a son)...when my
mother died...when cruel and hurtful
remarks were made to me...oh, believe
me...I wanted to give up. I really
felt like nobody cared...not even God.

God seemed far away and distant...I
wanted to die...because if He wouldn't
listen to me...who else would?

I now know that He was with me all of
the time...and He sustained me through
the lowest points in my life. He con-
tinues to strengthen me.

If I had taken my own life...look at
all I would have missed! I would have
missed my Gift for writing He so gen-
erously blessed me with...and I would
have missed meeting many talented au-
thors and making many friends...more
than I have ever had before.

Your compassion for others show with this write. I know this feeling too. Woke up the other day feeling this way for reasons I won't go into but today I saw a beautiful dove flying and reminded myself that life does have treasures.

Life can get better
I know it's fiction, but you
do feel this way sometimes?
We all have. [[[[[[HUGS]]]]]]

God is only as far away as you push Him!
To you, God was not listening (at times) but He was, and I think you already know that.
Excellent write! Most days that IS how I feel. This poem may be fictional to you but not to me.

((((karla)))) i have been there, too, but in a way, i HAVEN'T. i haven't had to put up with a husband who belittled me or never had a child i eventually had to give up through NO fault of my own, i never had to go into the military or face surgery the way you did, and i never had to go on disability (tried; denied though!). you have gone through so much hell in your life; now it is time you have some HEAVEN in your life! it is time that god hears the cries of your heart and acts upon them! sure, we both would love for him to act on our requests NOW, but he WILL do so in HIS time! we both just have to learn to be patient is all; even though it IS hard! i know! and i hope you NEVER, EVER give up; you are too strong of a person to do so! i love you with all my heart! (((((HUGS)))) and MUCHO love, your twink, karen lynn. :) GOD BLESS YOU, KARLA; YOU DESERVE ALL THE BLESSINGS HE CAN GIVE YOU! :) heartfelt, emotion-filled write; so well done! outstanding job on this! :)

Hang in there. God answers prays in his own time when the time is right. If it weren't for bad how could we appreciate the good? I kow how you feel though as many of us have gone through what you have, but time heals all wounds.
