I think sometimes God let us feel pain and doesn't answer our prayers, and doesn't always give our desires for good reasons.
If we are depressed, sometimes it would be beneficial for us, to just accept things, and realized, that in that lonely and ugly times we have, God wants to weep with us, and shares with us the pain we are suffering. He's embracing us the moment we are in sorrow, and is there for us, aS a loving Father, who won't live us in either ups or downs of our lives.
now i'm not exactly religious in any way, but i do agree with this. sometimes we just need to know that what we feel and do is alright, not a sin, but just a hurt like you say that needs to be expressed. we all enjoy sympathy from time to time instead of critical judgment. that's what i got out of this, anyway.

No problem! I just love how bold and to-the-point this piece is. Nothing flowery, nothing purple. It's like a firm slap to the face, but in the best kind of way, like the ones seen in the movies where the groom is too nervous to enter the church (See what I did there?) so his friend has to let him have it. Then, he says, "Thanks, I really needed that!" and he walks inside and the wedding goes on.
This piece goes to show that a poem doesn't have to be filled to the brim with literary devices. Sometimes, a poem can be simple, something someone would say in everyday conversation. And that, I think, is the magic of this little work of art you have here. Thank you so much for sharing!
Thank you! Yeah, I like everyday language in poetry I think it makes it more relatable I actually wrote this and then chopped it down a bunch because I thought, like you said - it didn't need all the fluff to make its point. Thank for commenting! I appreciate the feedback!
