When In My Darkest Hour - Poem by Velmar Pewee Hale Johnson

When in my darkest hour,
I seek my father's power.
When I am in despair,
I know my father's there.
He is no mere illusion, no fabricated truth,
it doesn't take a, Sherlock Holmes, or any other sleuth.
I find him in my heart, he guides me every single day,
for he is my one true god who has never lead me astray.
So if you're feeling sad, and don't know what to do,
search within your heart, for he's there waiting for you.
He picks you up when you have fallen, and wipes away your tears,
try not locking, God, away, and not seeking him for years.
Cob webs, dust, and weather, don't gather on my god so dear.
he's there web I need him, to take away my fears.
When in my darkest hour, the walls are closing in,
I look to, God, and say a prayer to comfort me within.
