So Far Gone, But Not Forgotten


Poem Commentary

We are never too far away from God and He won't ever forget you. We will always find our way back to Him if we trust Him and let Him be our guide and source of strength.

So Far Gone, But Not Forgotten

You let yourself waste away until your so far gone

Completely unaware of the pain you are bringing on

Your spirit’s trapped and is trying to remain dormant

Why do you let these hungry demons come and torment?

We shut our eyes when we don’t want to see the violence

We close our mouths in fear of hurting so we go in silence

But don’t we all have the right to our very own opinion

Why are you sleeping child! Don’t you know God’s dominion

We fail to see how this world betrays us without an apology

Your life is so far gone, but don’t lose your soul to technology

For we live in a generation where faith is not always accepted

Many have trouble relying on this method that often gets rejected

We must awaken the inner flame that slowly seems to die

How will you ever pick yourself up if you don’t even try?

For I continue to bury myself further into the ground below

The world hurls lies and insults but I will take the blow

I’m pleading for a second chance to get things right again

I’m pushing myself past obstacles to lose all sight of sin

Though I may be gone for now, I will never be forgotten

For there’s a greater love inside this cruel world so rotten

I see how you put a song in my heart that I love to hear

You brought light into my darkness so I’d no longer fear

You sparked the beauty all around that fills up every day

You have shown us true hope so we would learn to pray

You still remain faithful and love us even at our worst

Your amazing love is enough to make any heart burst

As we cross different paths that circle around and twist

I think about the pain of those nails driven into your wrist

So as we begin to understand the depth of His great love

We no longer feel a distance between earth and sky above

We will unveil the mysteries of life and find what He can do

For He is a God that won’t forgot or ever give up on you

And don't we all feel the same... God's love is the greatest love and the second is a child's or an animals that is loyal and follows you and depends on you and trusts that you will take care of them too. I miss the love of a childs eyes that gives you the strength to survive.. The number one thing that is often prayed for is what? Love, the love that christ gives that we neglect to give back and take a second look on who he has to for us to be content on earth and take care of us in his being of worth.. and when you know you found the angel to slowly take away our hurt, you freeze and push them away and you dig your hole deeper in the dirt.. Anyways, once again Love it!!

What a great poem speaking about God and His mercy and love. Love it bro.

Poetry is either something that lives like fire inside you or else it is nothing, an empty formalized bore around which pedants can endlessly drone their notes and explanations.
