Poem: Abandoning God

I used to go to church, and listen from the pews,

study the Good Book, and pay my tithes and dues.

The sermons got less interesting, they weren’t about me,

I thought about things I was missing, like radio and TV.

I tried going to church less often, like every other week,

but it didn’t produce the results, I wanted to seek.

So, I decided to attend services, once a month or so,

yet, it didn’t make a difference, I didn’t want to go.

When Advent came, I thought I might want to attend,

but Christmas came and went, without church in the end.

The year rolled by, I didn’t make time for the LORD,

it wasn’t I didn’t want to, but something I couldn’t afford.

Now I’m feeling a loss, beyond words I can describe.

an emptiness in my soul, brought on by selfish pride.

Did I think I could do it by myself, without my creator?

Was it the hardest of my heart, that made a dictator?


Do I really know what’s best for me, to rule my life?

Am I a good example to my family and my wife?

It’s interesting how we can lose our religion, over time,

we shun our loving Father and Son, it’s a serious crime.

Perhaps, it is not too late, to embrace my former faith,

should I set a date to return to church; October eighth?

Or is it better to drop to me knees, and start to pray,

why delay an eternal decision, for some future day?

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.  To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.” – Revelation 3:20-21 (KJV)
