An Awakening

A 14-year-old girl who has been through our Bible discussion groups gave us permission to share this poem that she wrote.

Dear God,

Today was a new day

ending like the last

full of sad memories

hitting all so fast

when I wake up

I hate the way realty sinks in

The pain, the guilt

And the anger within

and I pray to you

When I don’t even know you’re there

But I need something, n-e thing

Someone to show me they care

I’m so lost, if you are there

I need a little guidance, please

A little faith, just some hope

To set my demons to ease

I’m not asking for a miracle

or a whole new start

Just 4 a candle

in this lingering dark

I need a release

of this evil within

& so I end my prayer

with a brief – AMEN
