Nothing Anymore

I came close,

Or at least I thought.


I prayed.

I read the Bible.


I went to church.

I worshipped “Someone”


Whom I believed to be God.

I “fellowshipped” with other believers,


Or I tried, anyway.

I read devotional books,


Yearning to improve

My spiritual relationships.


Over the years, it happened,

Slipping through my fingers,


I lost touch, I lost Him,

Then, nothing.



Carry on Tuesday #109

  1. yes, it is a rough world, and many things can’t be explained–like God, for one. And suffering. Sometimes the questions outweigh the answers. I think living without faith will be harder than with it, at least at first, but it will be honest.

    1. Mike, I live in the South. Faith is like food around here. To deny it, seems insane. And although this be the case, I’m glad there are people like you who can at least appreciate the poetry. I’m writing my way through it. I did not make any certain ground-breaking decision. It just came out. And there it is. Thanks for your comments, and for the compliment. I appreciate it.
