Lament

Lament

Naive, pure, honest, safe, loved
Wrenched to insecure, misunderstood
Sad, lost, searching 

Chosen love, security unfulfilled
Childhood lessons tried, yet faltered still
Alone, dejected, giving up

Grasping for faith, truth
Rejected, attacked
Desparate for relief, solace, peace

Escaped to the pointless, meaningless 
Confusion, anger, sadness
Dark thoughts, actions

Innocence lost, self worthless
Why Lord? 
What is the point?

Belief in mercy
Seeking grace
Aching to be found

Psalms 142
