AND MY GOD SAID (PART 2)


“You fail a test
and then ask me to cheat.
If only WHAT?
You pray for sun or rain.
Most times you think
you call on me in vain.
I know your strife.
No, Death's not my deceit.
I'm here for you.
I know what life demands.
But comets, quakes and floods
are not my flaws,
'Cause gravity and time
have their own laws.
So at the curb look twice
and wash your hands.
Your spouse,
your job
are always on your mind.
I'll hear to your woes
but try this:
stop some time and listen.
Love and courage
you will find.
Life isn't fair
but life can be sublime.
So don't blame me for war
or dirty tricks.
Shut up.
The mess you make
is yours to fix.”

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
