Lord Show Me The Way

Lord Show Me The Way

A Poem by SoulCrusader (Yas)

I’ve had enough of the devil

I just wanna escape his evil

Lord won’t you show me your endless mercy

And make my life forever rosy

 

I just wanna escape these painful streets I grew upon

Lord won’t you make a spiritual path for me to walk upon

Now my friends say buddy that ain’t gonna happen

You’re asking help from the wrong person

 

But I don’t believe what they say, no I just won’t believe what they say

On my knees I will continue to pray, Oh Lord won’t you show me the way.

As a practising atheist with agnostic leanings the poem didn't read as a prayer. Simply a piece of religious poetry.
The Title may need to be considered. In these times, seeing your title, people may expect a cynical or humerous piece, rather than a work that obviously comes from your heart. That I think is where the poems strength lies. You have a strong belief. That gives this poem as much integrity as any of the multitudinous love poetry that swamps WC.
I do like the feel of it. It makes me smile.
Technically it iss handled extremely well. It has good flow, meter and cracking imagry with a nice Evangelic twang. I have to admit a slight jealousy at the way you handle the words. Really cracking but of work.

Good write. I liked that it turned into a prayer type poem. I'm a Jehovah's Witness so I try to pray to God everyday. I loved this work though. Good write.

I love this!! It. Is. Beautiful!! I'm not sure if you meant it this way but, in my way of thinking, life really is a bed of roses. There's the good things but roses have thorns an that's where our wonderful Gardener (the Lord) comes in an shows us the way to go:) WONDERFUL WRITE!!:)

Its not a prayer but its a cryout for a new life. To let God come into your life and don't listen to your friends becos they won't be standing next to you. Its only you who can make that choice for you and no one else.
