A Belabored Chat....With God - Poem by James B. Earley

Please know my faith has never wavered
Still there are questions just as strong
When...and..where...or if.....ever
Our best interest..with You..belonged

Was four hundred years abject enslavement
….Simply my Ancestor's…intended loss
Perhaps some secondary….rendition
A latter day's coming…of Calvary's Cross

Though our labor built this Nation…
Remunerated nary..one single dime
….In Your wisdom tell me frankly
Was criminality..Your state of mind

Now if it was…explain precisely
That I may spiritually understand
As I'm convinced…'Mysterious Ways'
….Indeed our lot…to comprehend

And so…I go…..in quiet wonder
Await enlightenment…I hope to come
As yet..I've known no earthly answers
…Except….cynicism….the likely one
