Pleading To God? - Poem by Dr John Celes

O God, not that you do not know;
But still, you permit many things;
You only know the purpose, Lord;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
The world has gone topsy-turvy;
Your wisdom Lord is infinite;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
Innocents are victims of harm;
Such heinous crimes happen each day;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
The men who rule are God-chosen;
The devils guide them to ruin;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
The rapes, abortions look scary;
Weapons of war are destructive;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
Terrorism is on the rise;
Insecurity prevails on earth;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
Idolatry is on the rise;
God-believers suffer the most;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
The mortal sins are more grievous;
Man thinks his strength is good enough;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
The battered earth has souls much bruised;
The poor have none to change their plight;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
The common man can't simply live;
All sense of values seems all lost;
Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
Ailments emerge without a cure;
Ill-gotten wealth cannot give health;

Can I ever query my God?

O God, not that you do not know;
The righteous wish to earlier die;
The wrath and curse of God seems near;
Can I ever query my God?
