Are you still here, god? -------------------------------------------
The forlorn prophecies of old
Coiled themselves around My throat
I struggled, naked, as I choked
on thoughts about a purer world
elated by the lies they wrote,
So unaware that I would drop,
Forgot to hear My breathing stop.
My knees gave in under the cross
too heavy that you made Me carry
Enslaved in wars that weren't Mine
My ashes at the stake of loss
three brothers I have had to bury:
Blindfolded as I slay My kin
The whip of time caressed My skin.
My sins- all written in your book
Banished me through your bolted door
when Dark had not created Light
when I had not a heart that shook.
I've been born only once before!
father so dear, and since those days
you've killed Me in a million ways.
I relate very well to this magnificent piece from a heart so torn and shattered because I asked the same questions. The same lament came over me in waves of despair and from the darkest Deep the Coldest cold the Widest Nothing roared in my entirety of being human but could not find a sane reason for it. Then strangely I found the reason – me! I did all that and more to myself. Read my first piece .. Peace.. and you will understand.
I will make this poem my fav and take 5 as an encore. Well done. keep up the deep work. Luv Joachim.
God didnt make you carry anything
We as humans must remember all the problems in our life we have created ourselves
If it wasnt for His Loving Heart this world and all living life upon it surely would have disapeered a long time ago
The biggest reason why it would have disapeered is we would have destroyed it
I mean think about it for a second
All these wars and disease and so on throughout time
Yopu would have to be stupid or insane to not believe in God because obviously he saves us everyday of our lives
Well put together
The topic was a little contriversal but I have to be honest here this was well thought out and put together very well
Please if you get a chance Please take a look at some of my writes and let me know what you think
