Hear My Cry #faith #poetry #photography


prison cell

Hear my cry

in supplication’s wail

answer me not

in this time of my travail

I will sink to the pit

let despair cover me

end where I lie

hopeless am I to flee

**

Hear me as I call

be it urgent in the night

offer please your help

darkness is my plight

seeking for a place

or off this cliff I fall

in your arms there’s safety

I’m weary of it all

**

Hear me as I cry

this cell I do not crave

wasting into nothing

life a dismal cave

to you I wish to run

 on wings strong and true

hold me as I fall

faithfully held by you

***

“To you, O Lord, I call; my rock,

be not deaf to me, lest, if you be silent to me,

I become like those who go down to the pit. ”

Psalm 28:1
