"God's Ready for you, are you ready for him?"


My tender heart is bleeding
This life destroys my will.
I search this world so empty
This void, my heart, to fill.
Yet still you hate me brutely
Still you drag me down.
You laugh and hold me under
As I begin to drown.

Let go of how you see me
Let go of how I feel
This life is mine completely
It tis’ not yours to steal.

Relinquish all the misery
Forget all you fear
Take my hand and hold it
For I am always here
Though life tries to break us
Though it seems disdain
This you know completely
Our pride it cannot stain

Let go of what compels you
Let go of what you know
Come to my reality
Sit down, enjoy the show

And now I see you smile
Now I hear you cheer
Even while I’m filled with fear
Still I hold you ever near
Comatose in pain in strife
Alone with you I’ll live my life

Let go of what impales you
Let go of what you fear
Take my heart and keep it
I am always near

Well done, it's emotional without being played out, the imagery is there, but not overbearing on the meaning. I like :3

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

So powerful. Amazingly written. I love your poem and story in one. Thank you for sharing your poem.
