How Can I Doubt?

Life As A Believer

24 Pennelope picΒ By Penelope Payne

I’m worthless, my life is in vain;
Tried to fix myself, but superglue
Can’t hold me together; the pain
Inside is too great, I’m too blue.

Not the blue of the sky or ocean,
But the kind that has no cheer;
The kind that throws you in prison,
The kind that comes with fear…

Everyone would be better off without me;
I’m just a burden; I can’t pull myself out
Of the dark hole; they are just blinded by pity.
They don’t realize how good it would be without.

I’m a pathetic excuse for a creature;
No good to anyone, not even God.
It’s too late for me, of that I’m sure,
Adam created from dirt, me from sod.

Filled with guilt and despair,
Depression grabs my soul,
And takes me on the way there,
Down into the darkest hole…

I said I wouldn’t, but I’m done,

    • Aww; at least it had a happy ending, right? πŸ™‚

      Thank you – it is amazing to know that the God Who created the universe loves me! Who am I that He is mindful of me? ❀ (Psalm 8:4 reference.)

      Aww, thank you! πŸ˜€


  1. You’re a miracle child! What a great story, Penelope! Is it your picture also on Sharon’s blog? You are so pretty. You have a lot of hair. I like your dress. You did a good job writing your poem. I’m glad the depression no long had a hold on you and it disappeared! God is with you all the time!
