Prayer Request from a Soul

Lord, I don’t get it, please explain:

Why my capacity to love

is engraved so deep it aches

for people who only know: take?

Why my faith continues stronger,

as tough days are more and longer?

Why do I continue in hope,

when each day’s a battle to cope?

Why do I believe so firmly,

when it sets me aside – lonely?

I don’t get it Lord, please explain:

Why my ability to love

grows, despite the aching pain?

Why am I grateful for Your grace,

as heart-broken tears paint my face?

Why do I feel truly blessed,

when my life is nothing but stress?

I don’t get it Lord, please explain:

Where is Your joy in all this strain?

Why does my soul keep praying,

when reality has no meaning?

So where’s the border, Lord, please say,
Between believing and insane?
