Description:


Man is made in God's imge.
As always, be honest before being kind. I'm open to opinions, thoughts, critiques etc.


To God and To Man



To God,

I look to your creations,
They writhe in swarms,
Scrambling over one another.
Hurrying to the top,
Never to think twice,
Of abandoning a brother.

See your chosen ones,
Fighting amongst each other,
Slaughtering the infants
Of fallen foes.
Not a single thought of mercy
Crosses their frozen hearts.

Gaze upon your disciples,
Know well the decadence they sow,
The plunder and arson,
They dedicate to you.
Blood of vengeance, blood of rape,
They consecrate by you.

Can’t you see your children,
Who have so debased the world
With fear and bigotry?
Can’t you see, O Lord?
The saying is true Lord,
The apple never falls far from the tree.

To Men,

Look to your Creator,
Whose path you follow
Blind to your own folly,
Left to grope for a path
And stumble upon your brothers
Abandoned by your unearthly guide.

Turn to he who commands you of jealousy,
Smite those who kneel
To any other than He,
Be the traitor friend or mother.
For none may ever be allowed
To slip the bonds of the divine.

Gaze upon your teacher,
Learn well his covert ways,
Keep your hands clean,
May the poor take the shame.
The sanguine stains of your foes
They shall spill for you.

Can’t you see your Father,
You who debase the world?
With festering decay?
Can’t you see your Lord Father?
Can’t you his children see,
How well you emulate his sins?

  I agree with Catrina. I liked the idea of writing one part of it to God and one to man. I wouldn't call it a prayer as much as a message. A strong message. You used some powerful words here. I loved this one, but I didn't agree with some of your views in the second part of this poem

  Damn! This was very good! I loved the way you gave the sides talking. It was as if God and man had similar thoughts and concerns, but fail to understand eachother or hear eachother. You spoke alot of thruths, some of them bluntly. lol. It was almost like a prayer to me. You did a fine job with this Thomas.

  Amaizing Thomas, but can I expect anything less than this coming from you. I love how you split it. It is so true and so to the point, you didn't sugar coat anything. All I can say is amaizing.
