a time ago...

Prayed on my knees..
Waited for you
to answer
My pleas..
But you didn't..
I know
I know..
Some answers
are not heard..
Have to wait.
And even when you answer
Might be too late.
I know
h a v e f a i t h..
I had faith when my family
was taken from me..
Faith when
I was beaten..
Crawling on bloody knees..
Faith when I was alone..
Faith when I was
on the floor..
Beating my fists
praying to you..
Just for the strength
to see me through..
Faith when I was
Blown off..
Thrown down..
Eaten alive
I n s i d e and o u t..
And I waited..
And I sang y o u r song..
Jesus loved
the little children
All the children
of the world..
But he didn't love me..
Bloody wrists
I hold up to the skies..
Asking my God
Suffer the children..
Filled with sin
Suffer the children..
No chance to win.
I hold my life up to you..
And pray
Father won't you
forgive me please..
I don't know
what I'm doing..
Now I give myself
back to you..

This is a gutwrenching and harrowing piece. Very well written Erica. Like the others I hope it is insightful rather than your own life.

Gut-wrenching and heart-wrenching, it reminds me of a friend who lost her three children in a fire, I too hope it is not auto-biographical. Jackie <> <
