People all around
see me play games from the start.
Lets me know things are not OK
as I tear me all apart.

Too bad God gave me choices
I squander them every day.
You can see it in my actions.
Hear it in what I say.

I think that the raindrops
are tears falling from Gods eyes.
He sees sunshine and rainbow's glow
reflected in my tries.

Yet there have been so many times
I think God has turned away.
I could not hear the answers
to anything I prayed.

So I sit on the sidelines
of this game I call my life.
Given up on everything
tired of all the pain and strife.

I cried, “Oh God please hear me,
I deliver up my soul.
Touch me with Your loving hands
make this wretched life be whole.”

There's the peace that surpasses
as I hear Him call my name.
He said I'll always be with you
sending me back into the game.

Now I can see the beauty
of this life God's given me.
He is showing me the good
I blindly could not see.

With His help I'll make a way
to a place where I will know.
His forgiveness and His guidance
and that He loves me so.

Good poem. I like the analogy between the game of life and any game. However, in the first stanza "Lets" should be "let" to agree with "see", which is the correct verb for "People". In the last stanza you do not need a full stop after "know".

This was a beautiful poem that flowed right into my heart. Powerful words and message. God bless~

This is a powerful piece. My heart hurts for the heart of the MC. I know how easy it can be to hide away-yet though we may be capable of shielding ourselves from others God always knows where to find us.
