Response to A Fool's Love

How is it Lord that I should be faced with this?
Isn't the hard part supposed to be Your job?
All I had to do was believe, didn't I?

Yet You still rely on me for these choices.
Is that not stupidity? Is that not dangerous?

My life would kill me or leave me for dead.
You showed me the Way to a better place,
But I think You should be carrying me there.
Don't make this so hard on me, God.

You should be here for me.
I will try it without you,
But I doubt it will work.

    Hey Nick. I was thinking about this and writing about it when I realized something. I don't mean to start a tradition or anything of the sort, but sometimes the act of writing brings things up from the depths of our conscious, or from the Creator himself through the Holy Spirit. Just check it out in my poem.
