God As My Crutch, a poem by Reem Fahd dedicated to Terry

Postby Reem Fahd » Fri Feb 05, 2010 5:11 am

One night I contemplated you
And I asked my self
What did I really know?
About you
All the times you let me down
All the times I called and you
You weren’t home
And I kept the faith
That you are still there
At the same old address
My mom told me you lived at
But why did I take her word for it
Did I believe because I was a fool
Was I a fool out of ignorance
Our because I wanted to?
Is it just that the thought of you
Makes it more tolerable
All those tearful nights
Convinced that you are there
Baring witness to me
You are there
I’m not alone
Am I so selfish to demand you of the world?
Jus to keep me company
When I’m broken and let down by my hand made destiny?
Should I let you go
Let you be your own
I don’t want to be owned by any one
Still I want to own you for my own satisfaction
Is that even fair to you
Shouldn’t I let you be
Your self away form me
Am I asking you to be just for my sake,
What I wouldn’t care to be for any one else?
Not even god all mighty you?
Maybe I should let you be
Let you go
And get on
Move on
Let you be on your way
Stop sustaining you for my comfort, blame and company
And just
Be brave enough for once
To let go of your crutch
To go it alone
God is a cruthc
I will walk on my own
Love & Peace

I like the poem. :D
Look, you've got it all wrong! You don't NEED to follow ME, You don't NEED to follow ANYBODY! You've got to think for your selves! You're ALL individuals!
Yes! We're all individuals!

We all need some kind of support/crutches at times but no one should be shackled into duty - not even gods :)

Some great imagery in there Reem - thanks for sharing it :D
