Wounded Souls

Wounded Souls

The soul of the lost and wounded cry out
seeking solace, from they know not where
Minds haunted by the events of their past
leaving the hearts, lonely, scarred and bare

Their lives broken, as the branch of a tree
without any hope, of being mended again
Peace and joy, seemingly to be lost forever
ridden by past guilt, they are driven insane

Tortured thoughts, invading their dreams
tangled visions torturing their weary mind
Searching every corner of their existence
still not a moment of solace can they find

They call out unto God, he does not listen
for they canít humble themselves to repent
Failing to realize, the need for his salvation
and have joy in their life, thatís heaven sent

Living their life midst pain, strife and woe
because they know of no other way to live
Wounded, and living like animals in a trap
cause they reject things God wishes to give

What a shame to miss out on God's blessings because of unrepentance. We can't blame God.

A very heart-felt poem. One can tell that the author cares. Couple little typo's I think. Verse 1: I think you meant "bare" instead of bear. And, verse 5, I think that you meant "life" in lst part of verse, versus live. Great writing.

VernaÖ. Thank you for pointing those out to me; and I have corrected them.
