Why Me Lord

by Tracy D Rollings

Why me Lord, tell me what did I do
I did my best and I've always been true.

Why me Lord, why so much pain
things I do, can't always explain.

So sit with me a while and tell me please
what in the world, can I do to make it ease.

All of my childhood, has gone away
can't ever get it back and yet I still pay.

So tell me Lord, when will it end
all I ever wanted, was to have a friend .

Please tell me, now that I've grown
I still love you, but the pain isn't gone.

I need to know, how we can fix this
can't go on, with my life at risk.

Tell me Lord, can you help now
the pain I have, is getting me down.

I know you love me and my heart isn't pure
but I pray that you, will send me a cure.

It's so hard for me, to try understand
I live in this pain, even now as a man.

From the time I was born, till this very day
I keep asking why, but no one can say.

But I pray to you Lord, about every night
we can work together and make things right.

Well I have to go now, have things to do
it's always a pleasure, just to talk with you.©2007 Tracydr42

What an incredibly heart wrenching write. I have read a few of your other poems and I m assuming that this one may have something to do with being abused as a child. And the painful memories still follow, haunting.

But I pray to you Lord, about every night
we can work together and make things right.

Well I have to go now, have things to do
it's always a pleasure, just to talk with you.

I love this poem. Sometimes i think it seems that he never answers but deep down i believe he does. I wish i knew why he seems to let others suffer so needlessly and allows the vurnreable to be harmed and unable to fight back. I suppose there is a reason for everything and its not for us to know. This is a terrific write and i think it relates to a conversation we have all had in our head and one point or another. So many unanswered question. Terrrific (5/5) Take care.
