    Born in this world with a life full of pain
    i keep wishing that god will shield me and keep me out of the rain
    but i get deeper into the storm
    my mind, my soul ,my body is torn
    grew up being touched in all the wrong places
    invading my private spaces
    i was too young to experience such horrible things
    still today i wish i would have said something,earlier
    my daddy, where was he to be found
    that sorry *** brother was never around
    never called or wondered what i may grow up to be
    oh god i'm crying out to thee
    why do i have to feel left out of happiness
    i didn't do any thing to deserve this
    oh god i'm crying out to thee
    why won't you answer me
    i need a hug from you
    your suppose to be there so why aren't you coming through
    my momma she struggles with for kids
    may be in the past there was something that i did
    that can't remember
    i'm trying so hard not to loose my temper
    but i'm angry and i feel alone
    it's even harder with my mother trying to raise four kids on her own
    when one ain't sick the other is
    she's running around trying take care of her kids
    oh god i'm crying out to thee
    i know you hear me help me
    my heart is shrinking
    lately i've been thinking
    the lord is my shepherd he knows what i need
    so why want you help me please
    on the outside i smile but my heart bleeds
    since age 7 i've felt like the unwanted
    i was always taunted
    (or made fun of)
    deep inside i always cried
    trying to hide my fear inside
    i have always been the type to say half the truth
    becase the truth hurts sometimes
    i was always lied to "your too young to understand"
    that was just an excuse to take up for that man
    and the things he did to me
    why god and i'm still crying out to thee
    i was so young lord why me
    why was i scared to go to sleep
    scared underneath my sheets he would creep
    i tried to tell but i was "dreaming"
    no one really believed me
    oh god i am still crying out to thee
    why is this the way things got to be
    why must i fear some much and loose it all
    why am i never caught when i fall
    why am i always mistreated
    why must i be the only one who's pleaded
    i still belive in you
    though i feel like you still could have came through
    i open my mouth but the wrongs words come out
    my soul is lost i can't find my way out
    oh god i'm still crying out to thee
    if you here me answer please...

    Dupe...

    this peace was well-written. I could feel your pain.

    Keep your head up...and always believe in GOD. GOD may not come when you want, but GOD is always on time. Trust in that.

    :thanks: for sharing :grouphug:

    Sweetie, NO one can tell you it will be alright. NO one can say they TRULY understand because NO one is YOU. BUT what we can say is that regardless of what is going on...trust and believe that he can and will take you through it. And we may not share the same battle stories but we jus may share the same battles...
    my heart to yours :grouphug: :heart: :grouphug:

    Definitely a well written scribe, I'm with redlady here, my heart was aching with every word. Although we feel alone at times, God does answer prayer, don't stop praying, and don't stop writing.
