Cry For Help - Poem by Kenneth Davis
Cry for Help by Kenny Davis
Lord, please hear my cry for help.
Lord, what must I do to save myself?
I beg of you, please! I’m at the end of my rope.
I’ve lost all of my belief, almost all of my hope.
Day by day, through life like a drone
The chilling thought of standing in the abyss alone
Lord, what must be said? What must be done?
To banish the rain, in hopes of seeing the sun
On the brink of insanity, a constant urge to yell
Crying for help, but I feel that no one can tell
Lord, what must I do for you to send an assist?
I feel like I am tightly shackled at the wrist
I know, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God…..”
Then why do you find me worthy of the rod?
Lord, I hope I don’t sound so demanding
This is merely one of your children, looking for understanding
This humble plea is, but an S.O.S
A humble child of God, looking to be blessed
Looking for a miracle, a favoring, if you will
Please open up the flood gates so the blessings may spill
Gift of God goes to those who endure till the end
Lord, when will I get to experience happiness again
My mental scars, tearing apart; Emotional wounds starting to bleed
Lord, I know of nowhere to go, but down on my knees.
Lord, guide me for I am lost
Please lay me a blessing at the foot of the cross
Lord, why allow Satan to disrupt my path;
Instead of banishing him with your mighty wrath?
Perhaps to test my sincerity, patience, and faith
I shall cry out no longer because I know help is on the way.
