I'm so scared and confused
and don't know what to do
I am bleeding inside and it's
all because of you

Why do I do this
Why did I turno out this way
THe hurt, the pain is all so real
I just don't want to face another day

If there is a God, why isen't he there?
I turn for his help, does he not care?
Was I put on this earth, to turn out this way?
Was I put on this earth, just to die and decay?

There are so many questions
and noone with answers
people dieing with all different cancers

Who should I go to with all of this pain?
How do I know in life, there is something
left to gain?

Welcome to these blue pages.

How I understand your well expressed feelings! However, I learned it wasn't God who was missing.  It was me missing an understanding of Him.  

I'd bet you'll get responses by posting this plea from the heart in either the Spiritual Journey's or Open Poetry forums.

Thanks for sharing.

When the questions are quiet,
sometimes the answers come in
loud and clear...

Welcome to Passions, and such a
passionate first write!

Please, check your email for a
Very Special Greeting!

Welcome to pip. I am new myself here myself. Yours was a touching read and although we don't understand all the questions, we still wouldn't understand all the answers. I'd enourage prayer and support from others. Keep writing and praying!

Welcome to PIP
thought provoking poem...
when we are right with ourselves is when the answers start to make sense...God doesn't wave a magic wand and make things right or wrong, God gives us free will to decide...and make is not He who causes pain, but ourselves.  

Looking forward to reading more of you
