Dear God

Dear God
I know that I have prayed
In the past
When I believed
In You
I know that I have prayed
For relief from my misery
The question then
Why did I receive more misery
When I prayed
To You
Was it when I began to think
You couldn’t be a white Man
Or a Man at all
When I prayed
In the past
Maybe you really were
A white Man
Who really was involved in my Life
Every day
So when I prayed to you
For relief
You forgot
So busy were You
With other white men
So this is my prayer now
Please don’t help me
Please go help someone else
I have all the help from You
I can handle in this Life
Please let me have my own misery
Maybe I will find my own relief
Just stay out of it
If you please
And be a nice white man
And Leave.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
