Trying to make peace, where peace isn’t available.
Behind wet tears, everything’s intangible.
Unable to have a clear thought.
Unable to see what’s being sought.
I keep trying to hold on to faith
But been broken, faith is now my disgrace.
I keep searching for some relief,
They keep saying, hold on to your belief.
What do I believe?
In something that gives no relief.
I keep asking, and asking and asking,
But maybe he has a hard time multitasking.
Cause I’m still here, losing my mind.
Asking for the answers to the prayers that I’ve assigned.
They keep saying “all in his time”
Before to long, I wont be able to make this climb.
I know he’s there. I’ve seen his work.
All I ask is for a miracle invert.
Of my life.
And my pain and strife.
I know I’m having a detrimental influential dejection party,
But maybe he’ll send the celestial hierarchy.
A band of angels, to help me through
Something to help me feel renewed.
If not, maybe I’ll just give in…
To this quote, unquote, deadly sin.
All I ask is for a little mercy…
Maybe it’s not him, Maybe I’m just not worthy.
Author's Notes/Comments: 

I’ve never, in my 25 years of life, written a poem. I wrote this because I couldn’t find a poem or song that displayed how I feel. If you feel the need to critique my poem, by all means, do so. But just know that I’m not a writer. I just wanted to post my poem where I could keep it available for myself.

Your poem Asking

I am 35 years old and wrote my first poem on February 15, 2011.  Ever since then I've written approximately 5 or 6 poems.  They continue to just flow out of me.  There was a time in my life that I had given up on a Higher Power because of my addiction to alcohol.  After I received my 3rd DUI and was lying in the hospital a broken woman, I know I truly surrendered, and asked God into my life and to take over the driver seat.  Since that moment my life has not always been easy but I've made it through some difficult times without using and I am becoming the person I only dreamed of.  I actually ended up writing a poem on my faith.  If you are curious go check it out.  Either way I encourage you to keep on writing.  It's obvious to me, you have a talent for it, and it's a great way to express your emotions in a healthy way.  I look forward to seeing more of your writing in the future.  Until then.  Take care.
