Empty Hollow Black and White

Empty, hollow black and white,
this is how I live my life,
everyday beginning and ending,
with hollow sounds my soul is groaning.

With laughter and jokes they occupy,
but nothing heals the brokeness inside,
so when they're not looking, I start to cry and say,
"Today is just one of those days."

But God can make me beautiful inside,
heal all the cirruption that cries,
out to him in times of need,
my God is a loving God indeed.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem, because sometimes we all feel down, and we don't realise that God is there waiting for us to ask Him to help us,
The things of this world don't ammuse me, or help me in any way .."with laughter and jokes they occupy"... and I find my peace in God who heals my "brokeness inside."
