Hi Sulaymon, I like the theme of your poem. It touches on some important ideas which have deep repercussions. It immediately reminded me of a quote by Martin Lurther -
“Christ is an astounding king, who instead of defending his people, deserts them. Whom he would save, he must first make a despairing sinner. Whom he would make wise, he must first make into a fool. Whom he would make alive, he must first kill. Whom he would bring to honour, he must first bring into dishonour. He is a strange king who is nearest when he is far and farthest when he is near”. Best wishes, Peter.

Your English grammar is not perfect, but your words are powerful.
I do take issue with only two words, " ...causes death" , I don't believe God 'causes death'. Some people believe and/or are comforted by thinking that God needed, wanted, and took a person home.
But in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were not intended to die. It was sin that brought sickness and death into their lives, and toil, and pain. God gives life, (as I see it) , and it is our sin-natured imperfection that allows life to end.....temporarily, until the process that will restore the earth to the paradise God intended is completed. (just my own personal belief) .......but these are things we are not equipped to fully understand, and each see differently. Most importantly, .....that we know enough to know that there is much we don't know. And to never argue or fight on these points. We will know the exact truth soon enough.Replies for this message:

Marti, are you NUTS??? Her grammar is not PERFECT? Her weak grasp of English makes the poem a bad joke! Why not help her and encourage her to write in her first language? If she needs to write in Eng ... more
