  • Shine On Me

    Lost in my own darkness for far too long
    Nothing that I can do to keep myself strong
    If there is a sign of hope, please fall upon me
    So that the barren soul can at last be relieved

    All I knew where these walls and the tears
    All I ever knew was neverending fear
    If a broken dream can come true at this very moment
    All I need to do is stand here alone, and maintain my focus

    And I pray to God
    Stare upon the window
    Will I be free? Will I recover?
    Only heaven knows

    These words demanding
    This somewhat hopeless plea:
    "God, please shine on me"
    "Shine on me"
    "Shine on me"
    "Shine on me"

    Please, God, shine on me
    And set my soul free

    A sad and beautiful lamentation - focussed toward the only entity who can answer the plea. Very beautiful prayer poetry - like some psalms in the Christian bible.

      Bry89 A very sad and very interesting poem. . . . which I hope is just a poem and not the result of actual unhappiness. I too write sad poetry but they are just 'sad vignettes' which just happened to pop into my mind at the time ------ and not the result of true unhappiness. I hope the same is true in your case. If not I will remember you in my prayers.

        I didn't intend it to be a complete "sad" one at all. Just the feelings of despair with a bit of hope too. Although, it is a reflection to the mental state I was in during that half of 2010 and those were bad times... but thankfully that's over now.
