Anguished Roaring

My God, my God,
why have You abandoned me;
why so far from delivering me
and from my anguished roaring?

-Psalm 22:2 (JPS Translation)

Why have you abandoned me
And made me live my life alone?
Why have you forgotten me
In this place where the sun has never shone?

Why have you forsaken me
When all I wanted was to please you?
Why do you deny me
When you know that I need you?

What is the real reason
Behind the misery I now feel?
What do I do when my pain
Is all that I have that is real?

  1. But this community is real. Just different. Much less than wished for but not nothing. I would not in any way belittle such devastating pain, loss and despair. I just think that this little corner of cyber-space which you have created, is special and beautiful and is a place where divinity is manifest. You are not really abandoned, John.
