Hello God, it's me. Are you even there?
Can you spare a moment to hear my prayer?
Do you understand just what I'm feeling?
Or am I only talking to the ceiling?
Can you give me the answers I've so desperately sought?
Or has all my service been for naught?
You see I really don't intend any blasphemy.
But could you take a moment to answer me?

You see actions speak louder than words
What was that you said about the birds?
Something about they don't have to toil
So why am I in all this turmoil?

I search and search yet find no rest
This torment, it tears my heart from my chest
But what do I know? A mortal man
Is this all part of your Devine plan?

Beautiful and from the heart.
A heart that God will not reject.

I think you put into words what a lot of people think but are afraid to say.

It reminded me of the Psalms.

Well done! Those who have had torments tearing at their chest while wondering about the purpose can really relate to what you have written.
