How Did I Get Here> (Shandorma)

Looking up
How did I get here?
in this pit
on my knees
Father God can you help me?
I need to get out.

I don’t know.
How did I get here?
Did I trip?
Was I pushed?
I’m trying to figure out
did I lose my faith?

In this pit
How did I get here?
I just don’t
understand
Did I do this to myself?
My own selfish ways?

Big mistake.
Searching for answers.
Can Someone
please help me
Deliver myself from here
Help me to pull up.

   Just writing...I've been here but through the grace of God I'm out..Thank you Jesus.

Shandorma-6 lines 3/5/3/3/7/5 syllables
Rhymed or unrhymed..any subject..no stanza limit.

    What a perfect portrait of suffering and self recognition and when you get to that time when you are ready and plead for help. This is truly a prayer.
