A Question Of God

Is that the time?
Has it passed by
so suddenly
without reason or with rhyme?
Has hair transformed
from black to white,
and life flown by
like day in flight?

Will God bequeath an amnesty
for conflict and for death?
Forgive the constant murders,
the constant theft of breath?

Whose rights are wrongs
and wrongs are rights,
turning night to day,
then day to night?

When the desolate eyes
of war are shut,
and the injured earth
appears as dust,
will mixed opinion still remain
and fight for all the others gain?

    As you haven't written a poem for a while I looked through a few of your older one's Sally.
    This is a very good one and with so much bloodshed going on in the world right now very apt too.
    I give it top marks!

    A question yes we all ask of God, I think you are right in the last line Sally for there is no end to fighting... very nice when you bring the subject to the fore, regards

    Sally-some potent thinking here. You search and I'll search and will we find some answers on
    this side? A gripping poem, well rendered-Joe. I came back to this sight

    Faith is a personal thing and that is absolute. However, if a god, and then depending on type, humanity may have to be detained for questioning. Thought provoking.

    Enjoyed this one too - Very well written, great imagery - deep, meaningful and a lot to think about...

  • Walterrean Salley (2/17/2012 11:27:00 PM)

    God's love, grace and mercy is beyond our understanding. And His forgiveness is to all who have a concrete faith in Him. Thought provoking. 10
