When Darkness Stretched Out Through The Universe - Poem by Gert Strydom

When darkness and nothing but a void
stretched out through the universe
God created stars, planets
and this place called earth

and man He created in his own image
as a conscious being, with choices to make,
a life to live and his own actions to take
but men vainly followed a deceitful being

started own undertakings to conquer one another,
to live only for pleasure, disregarding one another
falling into darkness
erecting idols from dead material things

and a time came where the wicked
were so oppressing other men,
and men were challenging God
with water falling from the sky

flowing up from the depths of the earth
He wiped the earth clear
but for the few, that knew Him
who tried to turn away from sin.
