Saved Life - Poem by brandy ingram

I walked the street of darkness
i just wanted to die
i felt like i was waisting my life
i was about to commit sucide
God came and grabbed me hand
he said to me someday i would make a good women
i doubted him so many times
and wasnt starting to believe anymore
i really hated my life
i didnt understand why God who did no wrong would love a sinner like me
day by day life got harder
every night my life ending came closer
i walked in the kitchen and grabbed a knife this is my final goodbye
slit by slit i watched it flow
then all of a sudden a song came to mind Jesus loves you did you know
i put down the knife and thanked my loving God, he saved my life
2years and im closer to God
he's my HERO and sometimes my only friend
God is great i promise you that
because he came and saced my hand
Now i reli on God more then ever
i look back now and i'm glad that My God My Father saved my life, and without him i would not be here today

    I relate to the line that god seems to be your only friend. It saddens me to think that he might be my only friend right now but then I think it's always great to just have one true friend. (Report) Reply
