I wrote this poem about a year after my grandfather had passed away...and a year before he passed, my step father passed...id say it was my breaking point when i lost all faith in any higher power...
if anything in this poem is offensive to you...i appologize...but i have my views as you have yours...
agreed ?

alone i walk, this path ive chose.
standing still not even the brilliant know.
twists and turns, up and downs.
living a life without smiles but frowns.
hand in hand i stand and stare
wondering if even loved ones care
a sip of the past, a shot of the present
the anger in my furture i tend to vent
realizing the now and forgeting the past
my present is slow but my mind races fast
this life im living i cant seem to move on
i have no father god, no jesus son
i lost my faith many years ago
to never regain this empty black whole
theyve taken my loved ones, hes taken them all
now whats left for me except to accept and fall
disagree with my blessings disagree with my pleeds
disagreeing just allows me to reach for my needs
If your god cant help you, and his son wont save
ill continue my belief of rotting in a grave
full of sorrow and full of pain
still mentally claim im insane
instead im just lost, ive stepped off the trail
behind me is just darkness on my tail
the light has left, its blinding no more
the light i miss right down to the root of my core
of all the sadness and loss that ive witnessed
when all ive ever wanted was a life of blissfulness

Very well written poem, the words you used, readers could empathise with you somehow, I like this poem because although it is written in a negative context, there is still some goodness, a willingness to find meaning and faith
