God Said, I Made A Man Poem by Jose Garcia Villa

God Said, I Made A Man



God said, "I made a man
Out of clay—
But so bright he, he spun
Himself to brightest Day

Till he was all shining gold,
And oh,
He was lovely to behold!
But in his hands held he a bow

Aimed at me who created
Him. And I said,
‘Wouldst murder me
Who am thy Fountainhead! '

Then spoke he the man of gold:
‘I will not
Murder thee! I do but
Measure thee. Hold

Thy peace.' And this I did.
But I was curious
Of this so regal head.
‘Give thy name! '—‘Sir! Genius.'"

God made a man, but man is so proud that instead of loving God back, he became boastful.

The poem shows man's ingratitude to his creator - the GOD who made all things in the past, in the present, and even in future

what could the man's bow symbolize in real life? what 'weapon' or hurtful things do we aim at God?
