((One)) What Do I Say To You? - Poem by Shelley L Baxter

Lord, I don't know
what to say...
what to do...
or what to pray.
Still, Lord I am
on my knees...
hands clasped...
eyes shut...
Praying anyway.

    Hi Shelley, i liked your poem for what little i saw of it, it does after all leave the reviewer perhaps wondering what this poem is about, what i mean is what were you feeling or going through when you wrote this poem? Don't get me wrong some poets just write a poem without any effort or thought, i guess i like to divulge and inquire more on the poem its self because a poem written with emotion or intent is always more powerful.I liked your choice of words and thought that your arrangement was good as well, keep up the good work.
