Misplaced Missive #65 – Wasted

Tears fall. Saddest I’ve ever seen.
Worry and concern and genuine care.
Wasted prayer
And wasted potential.

Don’t worry;
I’ll land on my feet.
I love that you care,
And have always been there,
But I’ve always known,
That life isn’t fair.

Your God is no longer mine,
So while you pray for a sign,
I know it’s a waste of time.
Time better spent focused
On your future, not my present;
Nothing is ever heaven sent.

Tears fall. Saddest I’ve ever seen.
Worry and concern and genuine care.
Wasted prayer
And wasted potential.

I’ll try to feel better than ‘fine’,
To not just exist, but to thrive.
You told me to do well,
Live up to my potential,
But I’d rather do good.
Either or, don’t worry for me,
I’ll always get by.
