Once You Have Found ME: A POEM

i sought the church
     while i fought
          fought the fall.

i raved at the hypocrisy
     the deceit
     the lack of dedication
i thought i saw
     in church going people.

i fell deeper
     into depression.
the hope of
     finding peace
          was gone. 

one night i prayed
     show me your church
          i need your people.

the answer came
     let my Son light the way
          you will find peace and others
once you have found ME.
