God, Please Don'T Make Me Beg - Poem by Crystal Johnson

I know we haven’t spoken
I know we aren’t that close
But it seems like you ignore me
At times that I need you the most.

Do you see me falling to my knees,
Asking you to help?
Are you really listening,
Or am I talking to myself?

Do you see my crying?
As I lie awake in bed,
Screaming, yelling, and praying to you
Silently in my head.

Please would you just answer me?
God, please, just give me a sign.
Tell me things will be okay,
Tell me things will be all right.

What did I do to deserve this?
What have I done wrong?
Did you just sit there and laugh at me,
As all this hurting was going on?

Oh please, I need an answer,
God, please don’t make me plead!
I need to know you hear me,
God, please don't make me scream!

I need to know you’ll help me
I need to know you’re there
I need to know you love me
I need to know you care.

Too many times I’ve got on my knees.
Too many times I’ve cried.
Too many times I’ve hurt so bad,
That I honestly wanted to die.

I just needed you to listen
Did you forget about me again?
What’s the use in prayers,
If you never answer them?

    I don't believe for a minute God has forgotten you. Maybe he knows you have the answers already within you. Stay strong Crystal. I'm praying for you. Love, mary (Report) Reply
