Hopless Searching - Poem by Emily Knight

It’s the story of her life
Days on top of days filled with pain
A continuous cycle of peace coming and going
And she sits here, clueless, nothing to say

Dark blue eyes filled with tears
Hopeless searching never ends
Heart shatters under truth’s wake
Under this weight she falls
Closes her eyes and slips away

It’s like hitting her head against a brick wall
When she tries to do right, she fails
Her scars deep inside refuse to heal
She doesn’t know who to turn to, she is so scared

Dark blue eyes filled with tears
Hopeless searching never ends
Heart shatters under truth’s wake
Under this weight she falls
Closes her eyes and slips away

One last time she tries to find peace
She looks up and cries, “God are you there? ”
She stays a long while, quietly waiting
For the day of release, but the silence continues

Dark blue eyes filled with tears
Hopeless searching never ends
Heart shatters under truth’s wake
Under this weight she falls
Closes her eyes and slips away
