God It Hurts - Poem by Amy Louise Kerswell

I said 'God it hurts'
And God said 'I Know'
I said 'God I cry alot'
And God said 'That's why I gave you tears'
I said 'God I get so depressed'
And God said 'That why I gave you sunshine'
I said god I feel Alone'
And god said 'That's why I gave you loved ones'
I said 'god my loved one is dead'
And God said'I watched mine nailed to the cross'
I said God 'Where are they? '
And God said 'Mine is on my right and yours is in the light.
I said 'God it hurts'
And God said 'I know'

    dear amy its a good poem,
    but im a muslim, of course we believe in the same God but...
    in our religion we dont believe that jesus is his son, we do believe hes a prophet just not Gods son.
    we believe that God doesnt need any family or friends, because he made us all and everything else thats around us. he has control over everything and everyone.
    we believe that the more pain we go through without losing faith in God the better we'll get in the next worlds: (heaven, hell) .
    of course you may think im a bit dum or unable to understand many things cuz im a muslim but we think differently and over all your poem was great and i enjoyed reading it.
