Aren't You supposed to be

Our savior?

If You are, then why do I have

So many questions

That go unanswered?

Aren't You supposed to bring

Light and joy

Into our lives?

If You are, then why

Is there so much pain in this world?

I try to believe in You,

Thinking that maybe You can help,

But than I see

My friends struggling with Your teachings

And asking if You have

Abandoned them,

And I wonder

If I could ever love

A God that allows so much

Pain and suffering

And allow him

To rule my soul forever.

You say that I can be saved

From the fiery hell

That is my disbelief-

I ask

If my soul needs salvation

Simply because

I cannot believe

In a God

Who isn't perfect,

But claims to be.
