Why Can'T They Leave God Alone? - Poem by Shalom Freedman

Why can’t they leave God alone?
They curse God for not existing-
While blaming God for every evil in the world-
They mock God-
They hate God -
They laugh at God -
They continually prove that God does not help anyone-
They say God causes the wars -
They put all their heart and mind into driving God out of our hearts and minds-
They do not stop
They cannot be quiet
They try day after day to show that our universe
Has no need of a Creator-
And that we are not in any way cared for or loved
By any higher personal power-
They want to hurt not only God
But all those who believe in God-
They call us deluded -
They say we are ignorant and primitive and stupid-
They try to revenge themselves on God
By hurting those who do believe in God -
They cannot stop-
They do not leave God alone
They hate God and all those who need and pray to and love and fear God -
Are despised by them
Why can’t they leave us who need God alone?
Why can't they leave God alone?
