What Would We Do Without God? - Poem by Shalom Freedman
WHAT WE DO WITHOUT GOD?
What would we do without God?
Without God our world would empty of its mysterious connections
Its hidden resonances would diminish
We would live in the clear glow of endless nothingness?
What we do without God
And without that hint of something far beyond what we can imagine?
Where would we be if left with physics and chemistry alone?
Low creatures of higher mind who could discern in intelligent formulas
Their own final demise
Who would not be blessed or know the sacred sounds
Of God’s music unknown-
We are just a string of particles waiting to be exploded
Nothing we would know
Would be holy enough to be saved.
