When They Deny 'You' - Poem by Shalom Freedman
WHEN THEY DENY ‘YOU’
When they deny You
And indict You
And mock You
And prove You do not exist
I feel a certain despair
And pray to You with greater desperation.
Why don’t You give us simple proof?
Why do You allow so many horrors in the world
Which speak against You?
Why must I need You so much?
And why I must have to look
To the Beauty of this world and the goodness of my life
To strengthen my faith in You?
Why must I live too in question and doubt
Needing and loving You nonetheless
Fearing You too to the depth of my childhood?
Give me more proof each day
With all the thousands and thousands of kindnesses
You have given
I ask for still more.
