is this poetry?

I wanted to know if this is poetry or not. God save me Save my life, Or let me die Let me feel the warm embrace of your arms Let me know you are their Take away my pain Take away my sorrow Let me find happiness Let me find peace Give me the strength to live on, To fight and overcome my burden Let me learn, To let go Let me find some good in this world, So I may be happy You are my lord, Christ is my savior Lend me your strength, For now I need you now more than ever In these times of sorrow, I hold out my hand for you I can only hope you will reach out to me If not live in peace, then let me stand by your side, In the land of the heavens Show me the light of happiness, So I may continue to live Lend me your strength, Let me learn, Let me be at peace By: Woatspers

do you think it is good?
the anagram for the by was good........ but you wrote it...... if not its a huge coincidence that all the letters in the name are in yours.
P.S. its decent...... but its a little, how should I say... an example of the mindset that turns to religion to solve there problems.... rather then faith it sounds like a cry for someone.. or something to fix there problems.... it comes off very depressed and desperate....... but its decent

thats the way it should sound because i wanted it to sound that way. i have been goin through hell a wile now and i always turn to god to help me.
well, I'm not up to speed on your hell, and I'm not a religious man myself but my understanding of Christian interpretation is that god is not going to do everything for you. he will provide a path... but it is up to you to take it. there was a joke I heard once... there was a very religious man and he was stuck in an incredible flood on the roof of a house.... a man came by in a make - shift raft and said "jump on, I'll help you to dry land" the religious man said "no thank you... I am a religious man, I have faith and I know god will save me" a few hours went by and a speed boat came by... the driver said "jump in, I'll take you to dry land" the religious man said "no thank you... I am a religious man, I have faith and I know god will save me" a few more hours went buy and a helicopter came buy the pilot lowered a rope and said "tie yourself to the rope I'll take you to dry land" the religious man said "no thank you... I am a religious man, I have faith and I know god will save me" after a few more hours the religious man finally succumbed to the cold violent waters... he arrived in heaven and was met by god, the religious man said " I am a religious man, I have faith and I thought you would save me, why did you let me die?" god said to the man... "I sent you a raft, a speed boat and a helicoptoer... what more do you want from me?"

I have heard that before. But nobody will help me through my living hell and its not bad to ask for help. That help form god could be guidence and I would know it. All I want is a path to take, so I once more may be home.
the path, provided by religious force or otherwise isn't going to jump out and scream "suprise, I'm over here" ... waiting for the manual door to open automatically seems pretty silly to me.... make your own path.... and the rest will come
