How Long, Lord?

Alina Kanaski, 24

Why do I feel I can’t talk with anyone
about what really matters?
Why have I stopped trusting everyone—
even you, God?
Why can’t I give up my sins?
Why do I keep disappointing you?
Why does the feel of you
slip away?
Why can’t I hear you?
Why do I feel so alone?

How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever?
Psalm 13:1a (NIV)

Thanks for listening, Lord.
I hope you haven’t forgotten me.
