WE CREATED GOD

i think we created God

this entity or being that acts as a shock absorber when things go truly out of wack

then we provide this comfort that...... God understands

when really or minds are just not able to soak up anymore

a God that is in charge of a creation who has gone astray

and as evil looms grotesque uncontrollable

we provide a solace that is supposed to soothe

God is coming back...the end is near

and when children hungry bellies rumble in the confines of the  roach invested one bedroom

a mother at her wits end and desperate to comfort will be heard to say..... God will provide

as she knows they are gonna die...the last chunk of bread was shared between the rats and the eight children earlier in the morning

a young girl with her mind and body polluted by the whorings of her worthless father and numerous cousins

the woman who gave birth to her ...God knows where...but told her in no uncertain terms yesterday to get out of the house

broken walks along muttering what she learned  seemingly eons ago in Sunday school words incomprehensible.....

when thy father and mother forsake you ...God will take you up

what happens when the pain is so great and the sorrow so fixed

that the conjuration  of God is hollow

and the idea that tears are a language God understands

and forgiveness is a concept much too foreign to apply to the sordid situation

making him up does not quite do it anymore

it no longer absorbs the shock

but instead one is left to the starkness of feelings that cant be benumbed

and God cant be created to fix the situation

what then?

An excellent write and it was always intended for man and woman to question. We were given freewill and being a people of freewill we choose the path we will walk. This world has always been and will always be full of hunger, hatred, murders etc. does God intervene at times? I think he does but we have to remember that it rains on the just and unjust the same. In other words, God does not promise a rose garden in this world, he promises a utopia in the new world he has created for the believers. A 10 for putting me on a soap box so early in the morning, makes my head hurt.

Wow Bobbie, that was stellar! Boy, this really has me questioning once more. If a creator was so planted in us to worship one then why do we continue to search, to doubt, to kill? Surely universally we should all believe in such. I do question every day the things you wrote. It has been my life long task to connect with this higher power and yet at times I think, oh I have it but fades in time. Confusion is where I still lie. I felt much sadness reading this write yet reality is struck hard at the end. And if God can't be created to fix the situation what then? How true your write is Bobbie!! I suppose I will just go on searching. Your creativity is raw with emotion and I love also your beginning line of could be we created a creator? I take away my doubts this morning after reading your poem with validation and I thank you for that. I tell my friends I doubt and you would think the roof just caved in. Yet when I ask questions such as these you wrote, all is quiet and a lot of jumbo mumbo answers come out which all sound as though they are not only attempting to convince me but them also. This is off the charts scoring and my only regret here is that I only have a ten which will never do justice for this write...Hugz

thanks...the ramblings of a heart that is truly searching for answers..... thanks for all the likes Caryn..... this inspires :)

Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.
