This is part of a series of poems which were written years ago before I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Some were written when I was a professing atheist and an alcoholic. If you have read my pieces since I came to Jesus I think the contrast is evident.
Poems from Another Live Part 10
Rain pounds on the windows,
Yet it can never get in.
It is like some people
Knocking on closed doors
Failing to realize
That they will never open.
It is pitiful to those
Who are on the inside
Watching the rain's fruitless
Yet incessant drive.
It will never succeed.
It's the only leaf left on the tree of life.
All the rest have blown away.
It lives, it grows, but none live with it.
GROWING UP II
Struggling so hard
To be free
To be me
And having a bad enough time
On my own,
Within my head
Without the added hassle
Of trying to stay out
Of the box you want to put me in
THOUGHTS OF SADNESS
I'm empty, alone, beaten and sad
And you, you are gone.
I want what we shared
I want it back again
I'm reaching out for it,
And it's not there.
Yet I don't even know what I am reaching for.
I only know that you are gone
And I? I'm empty, alone, beaten and sad.
