Battle Within

There is no more faith, All has been erased
Struggling. I can't seem to catch a break
Nothing has gone my way
Beyond my control, Everything I was forced to let go
Vulnerable and weak
Satin takes a hold of me
All backs turned
God's too, Only on his terms
"What is it that you want!"
"Why must I be which whom you continue to taunt!"
A life I would never think to ask for is promised
My blessings at its finest
Yet nothing different, all the same
God, I put you at blame
I know better than to be oblivious
I've read the word, I know how you work, I know you exist
I've been patiently waiting
I've been praising
I feel discouraged, prayer I refuse
The devil in me, un rebuked 
What more do I have to lose
More unanswered prayers, faith in God, shall that be what I choose?
Setting myself up for more failure?
It says for him to be my Lord and savior
Confused about what to believe
Either my father or enemy
It can't be both
Then finally, God spoke hope

    Yeah I hope that "Last Bullet" poem wasn't a real life tale...25 stab wounds, really??? :) Anyway, good one here, very relatable. I think many of us have been there. God can really test us and not multiple choice either, the hard stuff. We just can't lose sight of Him. You should post more Kori, keeping an eye out..... MC

    I admire your testimony in this written fine piece of art. It takes courage to share the goodness of God. The sermon in church yesterday was about "Purpose." "Why are you here?!"...that was a rhetorical question being asked to the congregation. But to sum it all up...basically we are here to light up the world by sharing and testifying about the goodness of our Lord. And this poem is a perfect example....keep writing....regards INK-U-SCRIPT

    There are a lot of people out there that battles with beliefs and faith everyday, a wondering soul that wants to believe in. I know I had my battles with God and putting all faith into him so I hope you readers can like it, relate to it or know someone who can. I love God and most of these poems are true stories except for the murderous ones lol please rate my poems thank you
