If I Were God - Poem by Mahfooz Ali

Times I wonder
How this world would be
If only i were God
Judging the actions of men

Then, no child would die
As i block all wars from happening
Would ensure all men love thier wives
Cause I am a standard of love

The sun would always shine
Where the cold is freezing
The rain would always fall
Over the dry desert

All prayers, i would answer accordingly
Cause i know all things
How lovely the world might be
The irony; I can never be God

    I wish you become God for my sake, so that the world will live in peace. Today the real God is so blind that the world is torn into pieces. (Report) Reply

    Hey Mahfooz, what we perceive as an ideal world, we only see with limited vision. God sees all, and knows all, and He truly knows best. But I will say, I liked the things you would like to do, pray for them and maybe God will hear your prayers, for He is merciful too :) Peace, Aisha (Report) Reply

    A thought oft expressed in this dying world. But, truth be told, it's not God's fault that we are what we are. After all, He gave us everything. We lost it through our own sin. And He still provided a way for us to escape sin. That's how great His love is. A well-written poem, however. (Report) Reply
