Why must I lose so much?
Why canít I hear Your voice?
Why does life have to be so hard?
Why canít I feel Your touch?

Where are friends, family?
Where do I go from here?
Where is my life headed for now?
Where is a place for me?

How do I heal from this?
How do I find the strength?
How do I start over again?
How do I take this twist?

Who will help me move on?
Who will walk with me now?
Who will comfort me, feel my pain?
Who will replace whatís gone?

What did I ever do?
What is this all about?
What do I do with anger strong?
What can I do but stew?

When will the pain let up?
When will I ever heal?
When will You respond to my plea?
When will it be enough?

Why are you mad at Me?
Why donít you know Iím here?
Why have you forgotten my grace?
Why canít you My love see?

When will healing begin?
When will you look to Me?
When will you let the anger go?
When will you let Me in?

Where is your faith and trust?
Where is your tender heart?
Where is the truth you once held close?
Where is there room for us?

Why donít you let Me in?
Why not receive My strength?
Why donít you let Me heal your heart?
Why not trust Me again?

Well done. It took me by surprise when I realised whose point of view this was from!

Your poem does an excellent job of showing that God is always with us, ready to take away our anger with His healing touch. He just wants us to look to Him.

I absolutely love this poem! And I'm not a poetry person. How many of us have asked those questions? What a wonderful way to write God's perspective in answer. Great job!

The word "Awesome" is over used, but I can't think of any other; these unanswered questions that come from earth and heaven alike...are worth pondering. Beautifully done, and a Terrific Messsage. Yes, Awesome is the word... Kudos!

This is well done. I love the answering stanza's. How very true!

I loved the reply from God -- it spoke so clearly to my heart. Good job with this topic.
Sherrie Jackson08/13/07
I love the form of this poem, how you gave God a chance to reply in his frustration, the way he must constantly be doing up there when we down here get started, LOL. Excellent job.

Laurie, this poem speaks to every heart! Yes, the unanswered questions are portraits of each of our lives at different points of grace and growing. Incisive and inspiring. Yes, the voice of God is wonderfully imaged here! I love your poems!!
