Dear God - Poem by Sitabz Garg

Dear god,
Remember me?
It was a long time ago
When I walked away from you.
You turned a blind eye on me since then
I am here and I am not asking you to forgive me
I am not asking for some room in your paradise
I am also not asking you to take me back in your holy embrace.
I am a big boy now and I suddenly realized; I have no one to talk to
Or share my feelings whatsoever; I know we have not talked in a while
And I know you will be mute today like ever before, when my mommy prayed
You were blind to her too, weren't you? She believed in you, asked me to do so too
And I did for a while, but never again and never will, as I don't see what my mother sees
I do not feel what she felt, she had incense I have cigarettes I am never going back again, so
I have much time to spare, I know it's a contraction, for you are busy, I am prodigal wild and free
You are free to talk to me, whenever you want, I am alive and as they say, so are you; speak, I shall hear
Guess I am pretty drunk now huh? But you know what I have to say; you can read my mind, see my fears
But it is when I need you, you are never there. So I will stop talking now as I have said I am a drunk.
Forgive my insolence god, for the only thing that shows you are real is the pain you always send me,
Punishments, yes they are always there too, and you have taken all from me…………………………….
Its dark outside, I am alone and, so are you, I am drunk and so are you, I shall sober up but never will you….but now it's just me and my wine……………...i will sober up tomorrow and I am weary now,
It is sad, but at least I am true ……………it's dark outside and hush the rains are whispering,
And are getting louder and louder I hear. There's a storm coming and I shall sleep now
Wake me up when the tempest ends and then I shall hear what you say, so goodnight
Tomorrow's a new day, a humdrum life awaits me and so does your life
and fantasy world where everything is good bright and clear
So sorry, I have disturbed you and I shall stop now
A silent night's sleep would bring me peace
The roof shall keep me warm
You are there in the dark
I shall sleep, and
You can watch
But hush… 23/6/14

    A silent night's sleep would bring me peace with good and bright daylight of next day in hope. Although we do not urge God to forgive still he forgives. He loves his every child very much. An amazing poem is brilliantly penned.10 (Report) Reply
