Emotional Faithlessness - Poem by Joshua Winfield

Have you ever heard your heart cry
Or a pain so strong that it felt like you heart
was bleeding like a bullet to the chest
With the pain that leads to sleep, but haunts
you like thief in the night
Your heart decomposes from the pain
which eats at you like a maggot to a dead body
Feeling happy when I'm dropped 6 feet under
but If I didn't live for the Lord what good have I done

On the run looking for what matters
when its there by my side with ever move I make
Y so tuff is the path I walk on
I know this path is the light
and the sweet looking ones are dearth
but why do I struggle in my pain with the right path
but in actuality it's like I'm trying to walk straight
but I'm being entangled by a trees roots on the path of death
like it wants me as if I was nutritious to it's bones

I know God disciplines those he loves
with the emotional demon I'm fighting
I feel like I'm over the lap with leather to my backside
So what is the cause
the root that guided me by hand to the insanity
that God can't help me or answer my prayers
which he did time after time
my faith in him is lacking strength
like it's never been nourished
which is totally opposite of actuality

We must he do to show his love
I mean y do I treat him like a circus animal
putting him trough hoops
I yearn to be firm and not easily shaken
I want to put my shoes in his print and let him guide my steps
God show me your ways and save me from my own insanity
