Sweet Voiced Lies (My Letter to God)

By SilentStalker

Faith only survives...
...When there's reason left to believe.

Why did we bother asking
If You were never going to follow through?
Now I'm left loving, hating, crying
Wishing I never said it would get better
Because Your words made a liar out of me.

Never have I loathed You so much

All the hope I poured into someone
Convincing them through such Will
That all would go well
And suddenly I'm picking up the pieces
As quickly as they fall
Only to have to catch them all over again.

If this is Your idea of a joke, I'm not laughing

I shattered my rosary again
And scorned You.
Because You've Failed me
Failed us and all around us.
And this time that You ignored us
You made a grave mistake
That cannot be undone

I'll never trust You again

And I Believe[d] in a greater entity
One that would love His creations.
Not Play us like a puppet show
And laugh every time we fall...
I knew You had a sense of humor
I just never thought it would be so sickening

I have to believe You exist...
...We need someone to hate for this

So Condemn me, Oh Righteous One
Claim me unworthy and burn me
Fucking Joke of a Savior
I'd rather be sure of my fate
Than live in Your lie.

    I've felt like this before; been angry with God. Wanted a fate I deserve. It's not easy to have faith when everything seems to suck.
