Lost:

I feel lost, and hopeless,

like I will never see any light.

I feel sick, and angry,

I know that this emptiness is not right'

I feel dark, and dismal,

like the pit I am in is never bright.

I feel only sadness,

that every where I look is night.

My heart is aching.

I fear I will never love again.

That my life will always,

always have this pain,

That every step I make

will forever be in vain.

I hope I won't always be this way.





Found:

I have found Christ Jesus

He has turned my night to day,

He took my burdens

when on the cross he was slayed

He will never leave me

even when I disobey,

I was oh, so selfish, but God has help that go away.


Jesus loves me,

even though I am a wretch.

He has saved me,

from my terrible,certain death.

I shall praise him

Morning, noon and when darkness falls,

He is my Saviour,

Jesus Christ the Lord of all.

Good poem, It has a nice story of personal well being and it tells how you found religion and how you felt, I feel its relatable in the sense that I am the same in this manner. Few gramatical errors, all of which were just a bit misplacment among words that could of helped the poem flowed more smoothly, But overall bravo keep writing I enjoyed this piece.

Thanks, but no need to worry, this is not based on me. My poems come from a base emotion and then I twist it.   I was feeling really down and wrote the fisrt half "Lost" when my mum read she said it need a seond half so I wrote "Found".  I have always been a Christian. I can't beleive I let those grammar errors slip!  Thanks for the comment!
