Are You There God? | Sexual Abuse Poetry

Are You There?

Are you there, God?
Do You hear my prayer?
Do You really care
about me?

I get to feeling so low, God,
I don’t know where to go, God,
or where to turn, God,
but to You.

I long for your comfort,
the peace that You bring
which can make my heart sing
songs of joy.

I long to be free
from the things of this earth,
to be innocent,
gentle and kind.

Oh, God, do You mind that
I ramble like this?
Do you care? Are you there?
Are you mine?
