God Is Still There - Poem by Willem VanVoorthuysen

Does ever life on earth appear
to have become a meaningless existence?
Do you feel driven by just one desire,
one desperate wish, 'Oh, God, just let me die...'

And do you feel surrounded
by cold grey walls, topped by barbed wire?
Do you believe that God has disappeared? He didn't.
Remember that He promised you the power to endure!
