Testing 1 2 3
Here I am standing
In the bottom of my mind.
No one to hold my emptiness
No one to be kind.

The God that I knew and loved
Is so far away.
I kneel and pray with all my might
But have no words to say.

The sins I have are mighty
Cant seem to stop their draw.
My life is frozen round me
Cant seem to make it thaw.

Can I finally be forgiven?
Can I be made whole?
Or will I slowly fade away
Losing my very soul?

Standing with my tear streaked face
With no one else around.
I finally start to look for God
Whos nowhere to be found.

I think of all the ugliness
Ive caused in all my life.
All the people I hold dear
are cut out with a knife.

What am I to try to do
In this life I now exam.
I will look for the answer
At the feet of the Great I Am.

He picks me up and loves me
Pulls me back from Hell.
He kisses my wounded soul
With His love He makes me well.

A beautiful poem, sweet and to the point. It flows wonderfully and I love the message. Nice work.
