Disappointment Murders Faith


Disappointment Murders Faith

The pain of disappointment pulls me down so low

I hang my head in shame from all the thoughts that flow

It strikes me forcefully like bullets piercing through my chest

Murdering the faith inside that held me together from the rest

Many people still take a chance on living by dreams and luck

Prayer seems to be kept as an option whenever they get stuck

Disappointment then leads us toward a feeling of hopelessness

Causing our bleeding hearts to feel the absence of true bliss

A feeling of desperation pushes deep into my fragile mind

As my staggering heart dies slowly from the emptiness I find

I must forget these deep regrets that brought this mental state

Look at what the painful blow of disappointment can create

We worry about outcomes to the problems we face each day

When we can overcome them all by taking time to pray

A thankful heart can drown out negativity that’s killing you

Were truly blest but fail to see the light that’s breaking through

Lord, encourage me to stand up and try again whenever I fail

I set high expectations for myself but sometimes I don’t prevail

I need to breathe in a new mentality so I can feel You near

Then I won’t have any excuse to doubt your ways or live in fear

Brett Fletcher

I have a similar poem I wrote called The Killers of Faith.

This poem speaks the truth all the way. When we don't know what to do, when we are stuck in a rut, troubled in life we need to reach out for His hand and He will take it and pull us through no matter what it be.

So true.. we sometimes, more often then we like to admit, take Godand his love for us for granted and we wlk away.. I've been writing things simular to this, about neglecting God.. Hoping he forgives us for sins of neglet. Love the way you put the words together!

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
