A Response - Poem by AHO Speaks

Earthly man's feeble attempt to give their creator God a name
Flags of religious armies brought forth destruction and shame.

It is by individual human choice the portrayal of man
Too many actions they do and really don't understand.

We blaspheme the universal creator holy God
When we destroy his children and place them in the sod.

It is by misuse of power and indivdual human greed
Nations children destroying each other; as if they were weeds.

Who among men with a cause so bold
Suffer or destroy children and say; they were told.

Not in a religious book or on a single holy page
Inhuman acts fill your loving, compassionate God; with rage.

Every child is blest with life to contribute and share
An image and likeness to nourish, love and also care.

The Koran, Torah, Bible and others we look
Evil acts against children; never words in holy books.

Man can never name the God they have never seen
Nor justify by intellect, the reason for every human dream.
