Is God Partial? - Poem by Hezekiah Tiamiyu

God, Supreme Being known to all.
His existence years before man's invention.
The church says He is a Lord of perfection.
When you walk through darkness and Him you call,
Faster than a gunshot, He hears your calls.
Fierce as a lion, God is feared by all nations,
For His speech alone can cause destruction.
Why art Thou give not to man power for all?

Why art Thou took a rib from man,
And made her, woman more beautiful?
Why art Thou give some wealth and power not to farm,
And many poor, and for the rich they work so dutiful?
Human being and spirit being have not equal ear.
When answers will come, I still will be here.

    Hm-m! The inquisitiveness lurks in every mind; and yet you've done a great job in justifying the issue. Great job! Poignant write! (Report) Reply

    The poem is very good, but lacks in the use of proper english. Yet you can clearly read what you want to say and it gives of your emotions spendidly, good job. (Report) Reply
