They say you're here.

That you're never far away.

They say you're everywhere.

That I could feel you.

But I can't.

I don't feel you,

You don't help me when I'm hurt,

Or guide me when I'm lost.

I've tried, I have.

But I can't.

I can't believe what I do not know,

Not in my mind, nor my heart.

I can't have faith in your peaceful ways,

When war rages outside my window.

I cannot praise who I cannot love,

I cannot feel what is not there.

So send me to the eternal flames,

But remember,

I am your child,

You are said to love me.

How can you sentence your children to death,

But allow those who have sinned, into eternal life?
