Oh God Where Were You When I Needed You? - Poem by Aldo Kraas

Play Poem Video

I was lost in space
Frightened by the out come
I was ready for the worst
Oh God where were you when I needed you?
For so long I was trapped in a no win situation
So many times I was looking for an answer
So many times I waited for a miracle
Where are all those years gone of pain and suffering?
Oh God where were you when I needed you?
When will my hurts go away?
God have mercy upon me
Oh God where were you when I needed you?
Show your love to me
Please God; give me peace at these hard times
Oh God where were you when I needed you?

    The expression of your feelings have been beautifully written in this piece. There are times when we all need some hope. Many of my poems also express this. God always listens as we pray. His love is eternal; He would never desert you.... (Report) Reply

    I can actually say that I understand where this comes from. There are times when I feel exactly like this. I'm sure it took alot of emotion and energy to write out feelings like this. I applaude the heart that can pour out emotions like this. For even though it feels like too much....there are those out there that are willing to be your shoulder. Thanks for just writing as you feel it.

    Always & 4ever,
