When I Am Sad - Poem by samuel nze

When I am sad
And it seems everyone has let me down
And my heart is bleeding
And I feel like crying
And I just want to wail
When I am despondent and totally disappointed, shattered,
When I am not at all happy
I recall that tomorrow could be better
Yes I have enemies
So many people hate me
They hate my faith, my guts -
They hate everything about me
They want me to die
They do not want to see me smile
When I am tempted with gloom and despair
And my world seems to be closing in
I reach out my hands not to grasp air
I reach out in the hope
Of catching God
Of holding him close on tight.
