Importance of Faith
I thought I had life
Under control.
I didn't need faith
Because I was doing
Fine all by myself.
I didn't expect
The clouds to roll in
Or my friends to run.
I didn't see the rain
Starting to pour,
But now I'm blinded.
The thunder didn't
Even phase me.
I wasn't aware
Of the deadly lightning.
The water pushes
Me deep into despair.
    I'm under my head
In dark waters.
A hand reaches out
To pull me out,
But I have too
Much pride inside.
I am given a towel,
But I refuse.
Id rather stay wet
Than be helped.
People cry for me.
I tell than to shut-up.
I am begged to change.
Begging is pitiful.
Someone prays for me,
And I realize what
A stupid mistake it was
To throw my faith away.
