By Michael W. Raley
I prayed for miracles, but they never came
While singing songs praising your name.
The greater lesson I tried learning,
Only to feel the blade of agony twisting and turning.
I believed for me you had a great and glorious plan,
But all I see is a trail of heartache and a broken man.
These scars of abandonment I can no longer hide,
For they go deep and wide.
They say your ways we can’t understand,
Yet, how is that a comfort to every hurting child,woman, and man?
I often wonder if you are there
And if you are,do you really care?
Yes? No? Maybe?
Have we’ve been left defenseless as a newborn baby?
It is your will, they say, for all of the pain and misery we go through,
Yet, we’re the ones who will have to give account to you?
