Flee Away......a psalm


A Psalm

I cried out to our God
What is it I’ve done
What wrong have I committed
That you would hurt me so


Where did I go wrong
Where was my mistake
That you would make my life such misery


How did I come to this
How has my place of joy become an open sore
What bitter ointment do you have ready for me


I cried out to my God
I cried tears without noise
Silently they slipped down my cheeks
As I pleaded for an explanation


What answer did you give
Where is your mercy and care
How distant you seem to me
Flee away from torment is all my reply

    Good write Summer. I know - not all the Psalms are praise and jolly. Some seem like rants, but they are real situations of human life.
    Also, people can parrot-talk 'God is good all the time'. Of course He is, when all is cosy for them! doh! But it is a true statement though.
