Blasphemy - Poem by Josh Weiss

Abandoned and in sorrow I stood alone,
where the whispering winds were blown.
Upon the dark field I was that night,
willing to stand for the final fight.
The sickly slanted pale moon slept soundly in the sky,
as dark thickening clouds stormed the heavens up high.
I raised my hands in utter defiance to the Lord,
challenging him to strike with the mighty sword.

“Thou art inferior God of heaven up high,
thou and thy kingdom resting eminent in the sky!
Reveal thy power if true it be told,
manifest now if thou art so bold! ”

A low echo of thunder rolled slowly across the sky,
as the pitch dark clouds dissipated from up high.
I lowered my arms in deep woeful regret,
as God left a world he would gladly forget.
Doomed mankind I had with darkness and night,
for challenging the Almighty all out of spite.
Never again will the blessed Lord return,
while believers question and believers turn.
There I was very cold and very afraid,
as the echo of thunder began to fade.
Abandoned and in sorrow I stood alone,
where the whispering winds were blown.
