TITLE: Looking for His voice
By Wesley Hesketh


I sit here in depression
With no one to talk to.
If there were Iíd tell them
What Iím going through.

My words seem to be stifled
Stuck within my mind.
Iím sitting at my keyboard
But cannot write a line.

My Fatherís being quiet
I cannot hear a word.
All the things I want to say
Heís already heard.

I cannot ask for mercy
I search for words Iíve said.
I wonder if He hears my prayers
Or are my words now dead?

My soul is being twisted
My fear -- it is so great.
I have so many questions
Iím rushed and cannot wait.

I have found His special blog
With writings on its wall.
He talks about the sins we do
But He forgives them all.

I read His site each morning
I see Him show the way.
So His words have touched my mind
I hear them when I pray.

Quietly He shows me
How to ease my throbbing pain.
Stopping all the voices
That are driving me insane.

This blog is called the Bible
It is my holy ground.
The computer can be off or on
But His blog is always Ďround.

Now youíll see me smiling
No longer am I alone.
His Word has drawn me closer
ĎTil Heíll finally take me home.

Nice angle on the subject

I enjoyed this poem. Definitely a different perspective. Unlike other blogs, God's "blog" to us, is always there, always the same, and always trustworthy. Great job.

Very well done! I like the metaphor of the Bible as a blog. And how blogs can leave us lonely but His word never does. Thank you!
Randy Foncree11/04/11

This really tugged at my heartstrings and I ached for the MC. I, too, have felt lost and alone and wondered if there was any hope.

You managed to cover the topic in a round about way. It's not exactly about blogs but the analogy is creature and the first one like that that I have read.

I hope you found the answers and reassurance you are lookingfor. Remember you are never alone, this is a great message that I'm sure many can relate to.

God's blog to us--I like it. Nice poetry; it reads fluidly and has a great message. Well done.

This poem was beautifully written! This touched my soul. Thank you.

This is a beautiful poem with a great message; one that is timely for me to read. I understand the analogy; however, I struggling with calling the Bible a blog.

One suggestion, watch for plurals. Last line "take" should be "takes".
Kristine Baker11/05/11
Scratch my comment about plurals, I reread it and it is fine. ;)

Beautifully written!

God's word is our quintessential "blog" so to speak. I found this to be a clever way of bringing the topic to light.

Thanks, I really enjoyed your entry and the powerful message it conveyed.

God Bless~

I love how you bought God into blog. I enjoyed your poem so much. Thank you for sharing.

Good flow and rhyme. Good message and incorporation of 'blog', though the Bible is more an established resource than a daily added to accumulation of posts. I also wonder if more attention should be paid to tense. Everything is written as present while there are several stanzas that I assume are meant to be seen as past tense. Enjoyed it.
Glynis Becker11/12/11
Very clever angle. The rhythm was great and the meaning is clear. I really enjoyed this!
Nancy Bucca11/13/11
Very well put. The Bible truly is the best blog of all.
