Too Busy Digging

I walked the Earth

With my eyes to the ground

And fell into a hole

I found a shovel

That had probably been used

To create this pit

And started to dig

Thinking I could find

A way out or the other side

But I found nothing

Except more and more dirt

When rain began to pour

I thought I might drown

So finally I

Turned my head to the sky

To yell at the clouds

And noticed all of the ladders

That had been hanging

While I was too busy digging

    I donโ€™t mind giving clarification:) I mostly felt like I never truly looked to God growing up, I always kept my eyes and mind set to Earthly things. While looking at the ground I stumbled into a dark place in my life yet still I refused to look up. Instead I continued to deepen the hole I fell into, thinking I could still save myself using Earthly things (the shovel). I think the rain is a metaphor for God trying to get my attention and when I turned to argue with Him I finally realised He only wanted to offer help.
