Prayer

Finding you today
and still searching tomorrow
to understand Your sufferings
and the reason for my sorrow.
Maybe You were always there,
or came to me today
but I'll stay chasing You,
to be like You in every way.
So I'll keep to helping others
find their faith inside
to clothe the naked; feed the hungry
'til the day that I reside.
There's a reason that
You've brought me here,
without the hardships
I'd live in fear
that You're not really out there,
I wouldn't live for another day.
Continue to help my keep my faith
and for this, God, I pray.

Hi, you commented on one of my poems. I was just wondering how you got your work published  in the TeenInk magazine, because I've been trying for a while and perhaps I've been doing something wrong.

Just keep posting all the time, all you're ideas even if you think they're stupid.  When I got mine published it had like one comment and 50 views so you don't need a lot of people to see it to get it published. I really didn't do anything special, just kept posting.
