I Couldn’t See God

Rating: 2.9
I searched, and I searched, but I couldn’t see God –
Said the man who first went to space
He could have avoided that terrifying thought
Had he stayed in his natural place.

i think there's more to this poem than what appears....if man has to rely on science to prove God, he will never be convinced....although on the other hand, science is slowly recognizing things that are of the spirit dimension... and who knows, imaybe in the future....

This reminds me of some particularly deadpan humor I've run across somewhere before; but one thing's for sure, you've nailed it..(smile)

A thought provoking poem - as it illicits the image of the first Russian astronaut that could appreciate the awe of outer space, but could still not see the face of God in His creation. But back on the familiar boring earth he never even gave God the time of day.

Leaving either of these behind may indeed be terrifying. But you seem to spare judgement on whether this is a good thing or not (although I think you believe it is a good thing

God is invisible, but everywhere.He's not that we can see but he's there, somewhere.
