Turning from God

Exuberant with an abundance of new youth, A heart so fresh, so full of light, Grows dark and begins to write, It sees through the lies it knows the truth. Its soul loves God; with him it confides, breaks bread, The soul keeps its heart and continues to pray, Until the day the heart converted the soul to grey, Pain unfolded, for the human they held, was now dead.
