God and His Ways

life-sucks-1bb9

We are not born into this world,

knowing what we are supposed to do.

               More often than not, we are

                      groping in the dark,

                        without a hint or clue.

                                 The more answers we seek,

                           the more questions He throws at us.

                               The closer we seem to reach,

                                                               (our goal),

                            the farther He yanks it away from us.

 

                                    It almost feels as if,

                                       that’s His only job,

                                                   to torture us to death,

                                                         to make us weep

                                                                      & sob.

Or perhaps that’s a pastime,

something He does to lift his mood,

maybe He enjoys the look on our faces

when we’ve lost all hope

and think we are doomed!

                                                                               But..

                 What if…

Just  What if…

  we are looking at this all wrong?,

  what if..

 He really isn’t all that powerful

                                         and strong?

What if He is as human as you or me,

       a lot more delicate and fragile

                      than made out to be?

What if He never had control over your life,

   & was just a silent spectator to your joy or strife,

What if he leads a life worse than yours,

barely manages to get by,

                                              with his work or chores,

Would that make you

a little more compassionate,

a little more kind,

or would you still prefer

to roam about..

with anger on your mind?

groping in the dark: find one’s way in the dark
yank: jerk or pull suddenly
strife: angry contention or fighting
