Oh Lord, it’s too dark to see


‘Oh Lord it’s too dark too dark to see’… ‘I can’t take it anymore’.

Cannot you see what these last few years have done to me?”

The last four years I have seen tempest after tempest without relief.

Pray tell dear Lord, what did I do, or not do which has brought this burden unto me.?


For dark clouds lie like a heavy fog obliterating the light which I know surely shines.

Whispers of darkness call unto me in the night; demons of darkness seek my mind.

Impending doom slithers’ like a serpent, calling, oh calling through the night.


I seek you dear Lord, yet I feel so alone; you said you would never leave or forsake me…




On broken and bloody feet I walk the path formed on a life of uncertainty.

First you took my wife with cancer, then I too find that cancer befalls this little man called me.

Oh Lord, I tell you now on bruised and bloody knees…


Where once there was sunshine; now it is only darkness that follows me.

Pray tell dear Lord…why, oh why do you allow this darkness to follow me around?

So many times since these trials began that I have wished that I were dead.

It would have been so easy; just the soft click of the chamber and I too would be in the



Oh Lord…it is still too dark to see…say goodnight Gracie for we have only and always

sought the light.

Such a revealing poem. I recall my first day in prison ministry. It was one of the best days of my life. I felt that I was needed and at home because I recall my times as a teenager and I should have gone to the big house. Sometimes the thought goes through my mind that these yahoo's can make a weapon out of cardboard and I can be toast in two seconds. Well, I would rather die in a prison working for Jesus Christ then in a car accident or being shot on a city street. At least I will die doing the Lord's work until my last day comes. My greatest fear is not that I die of cancer or any other disease my greatest fear is dieing without a leaving a living legacy for how to live and die for the cause of Christ until the very end for my family and friends. Amen. PS: To shot myself is a cowards way out with no purpose, rhyme or reason. Besides family will wonder forever if there was something they could of said to make a difference. No thanks I don't want that kind of legacy and I don't wish it on anyone. Amen
