Timothy Venard

(November 29th 1995 / Lewes)

God's Judgement of Man


As God spoke to man,
Mane spoke back.
‘I, ’ said the mouth
‘can sing your praises,
I alone can talk of your greatness.’
‘but is it not you, ’ said God,
That lies and gossips?
Do you deny that you will give orders?
Orders of war? ’
The mouth was silenced.

‘if man cannot live for that,
Then the superior strength is:
The ear! That hears, and learns of your greatness.’
‘is it not you though, ’ said God
‘that listens and enjoys gossip and lies?
Do not pretend to ignore the fact
That you will listen to thing
Best left unheard! ’

As the foot stood, the Lord interrupted,
‘it is no use! I know more than you
Of the greatness yu can do;
You can walk and explore my glorious creation!
But you will explore and question what you see!
You will march armies to their deaths! ’
In protest, the mouth spat at the Lord!

God turned and for the first time,
Noticed the soft ‘bom bom, ’ of the heart.
You, ’ said God!
‘You who loves and is humble,
For your love and your love only,
Shall I let man live! ’

P.S. I wrote this as part of a little project when I was 12, and I know it's rather dull, but I like it. x T.V. x

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

I speak not, I trace not, I breathe not thy name;
There is grief in the sound, there is guilt in the fame;
But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
