God

Rating: 3.8
I am God—
Without one friend,
Alone in my purity
World without end.
Below me young lovers
Tread the sweet ground—
But I am God—
I cannot come down.
Spring!
Life is love!
Love is life only!

Life is love! Love is life only! Better to be human Than God—and lonely. A thought out poem, rationally done poetic fun,

Since I believe in the Trinity, I know God is never lonely. But I love how Hughes takes the time to explore what it might be like to be God and think about how he might feel in God's place. He wasn't afraid to think about his faith, or what he believed, and to ask questions. And he asked his best questions in poems.

He's putting himself in God's point of view. Maybe God is lonely? Maybe he wishes he could experience life such as we do? ? Don't disrespect a remarkable poet and writer such as Langston ever again.

Absolutely third rate and boring. Langston was a loner and a loser.
