What It Is God Wishes - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A unity that represents, Diversity and accepted...
Is the only way politics,
And divisions...
Between religions,
Can heal to mend...
The mess created from factless,
Created and based upon,
Images and symbols made.
From mysterious night visitors,
Whispering gently...
What it is they should hear.
With this to write down,
In words to make clear...
God had sent them.

#1...I am a Christian.
And I represent a multitude,
Of worshipped beliefs.
#2...I am a Muslim.
#3...I am a Jew.
#4...I am a Buddhist.
Not a Hindu to confuse.
#5...Well, I am an Atheist.

Which one of you can tell me...
From what faith did God create,
The Earth? '
