Feeling Hopeless

So much has happened in my personal life that it would be beyond depressing to write about it, though, having said that, the poet in me usually comes out strongest when I cannot find the words to say. And this poem was born...

Lord I’m broken in two!
Prostrate on the ground I fall
If I humble myself before You
Would You hear me when I call?

Shattered, alone, and confused
Dying a little more each day
If I feel as if I have been used
Would You answer when I pray?

Having drifted apart from You
I don’t expect a response at all
But having no other hope to see through
Would You catch me when I fall?

My life is in pieces and scattered
My faith a dim light at the best
Yet I yearn that to Someone I’ve mattered
Please, Lord, hold me and grant my request!


  1. I wish I knew what to tell you, but you know that I am ill qualified to say anything. But I have you in my thoughts during these past few weeks and will continue to do so.

  2. This is a deeply moving poem. Though I just met you briefly through A-Z, I hope you realize that you have real talent and you do matter! It's very important to never lose hope. I wish you better times ahead. Julie

  3. He's always heard me and I'm no treat let me tell I feel confident in saying that in this life He is the One who will always be there for you. The only One you can really count on.

  4. He hears us and we just have to get into sync with his timing. Doubt, sorrow, and confusion is a natural part of the cycle of life. Sometimes poetry is the best way to express our feelings and that means of expression is a gift from God. David sure wrote his share in the Psalms.
    Blessings to you.

    Tossing It Out

  5. Poetry is a good way to express pain that we feel inside. I hope that your prayers have been, or will soon be answered.
