A Life Of Longing - Poem by Lora Colon
My life is troubled with longing,
So many dreams unfulfilled;
Longing for love I never found
And, most likely, never will
I'm longing to see the future,
How long will loneliness last?
Old memories offer no comfort,
So I long to forget the past
I long to know if God exists;
In my mind it's still unclear
Who to praise for nature's beauty,
Through disaster, whom shall I fear?
Some praise God in all circumstances,
The faithful worship without doubt;
But I must question the dilemma
Of the wars, the famine, the drought
I'm torn between loving and hating
A God who can't seem to decide
Whether wrath or mercy is deserving,
So both arrive, with hope on the side
I'm tired of hoping and longing,
I seek refuge in solitude;
I abandon my unanswered questions,
Ascending to spheres of quietude
I beg for this longing to end now,
When will I see the truth revealed?
Will the stirring beauty of love and faith
Be mine someday, to touch and to feel?
