Existencial Struggles Poem by obed Souza

Existencial Struggles

Rating: 5.0

Surrounded by pain and suffering
My eyes … I looked away
Trying to find sense and purpose
My mind confused, my faith gone astray.

Of God a stranger, my soul in tears
I dropped my fears in an ocean of uncertainties
The news on the papers scared me to death
No reason, no meaning, no relieve to my flesh.

Remove the debris, pick up the litter, bury the dead!
Reach for the survivors lying ahead!
Existencial summons, I could not defy
Love is the word I cannot deny.

My cry, my plea “ Am I strong enough to beat this wave? ”
But then, love lifted us up from the grave.
