Far from God (a poem)

I must get off this path of sin, and find my

inner-being in God, but I do not know how.

I pray, but I no longer feel the consolation

I once felt – that wholeness and joy, like I was

being held tightly in His arms.

That is gone now – now, all I feel is anxiety and

the accumulation of irritations; my heart

is colder and I look back to that tranquil time as if

it was lived by someone else.
