A Warning to God

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood

a-warning-to-god

Look at you upon your throne,

Staring down at broken homes.

I hope you fall far from there,

And loathe deeply as I stare.


I’m reaching out with wanting hands,

I need your help for I cannot stand.

Standing upon my own two feet,

I’ll pull you down and take your seat.


Help me if it helps yourself,

I’ll meet you in the lakes of Hell.

Down here we fight with gnashing teeth,

I’ll make sure your blood will seethe.


For Hell shall be my resting place,

I hate you God, I’m Your disgrace.

Forged in the fire of Your evil wrath,

Purging Your evil is my path.


Coward sitting on your royal seat,

Treating us like useless meat.

Where are you in these times so lame?

Absent, yet success you’ll claim.


I’ll be waiting for your return,

Rest assured that you will burn.

This eternal battle may never end,

Until you’re gone so we may mend.

Taking Power Back

Any God who would lay claim to the good in this life, my successes, and my strength while being absent in the face of all the bad... that God is no God of mine. My strength is my own, the successes belong to us, and we are the ones striving for good in God's apparent absence. God may not claim the good in my life, he may not claim my endurance, and he may not see me bend the knee at his behest. God deserves only to bow to us, for we are tasked with overseeing His abandoned creations.

If God is the force driving me, then you worship a God that loves hate, because my fuel is spite and it tastes quite bitter.

Mitara, I already believe in higher spiritual powers, I just don't preach it because I feel in preaching it then you are bringing attention to yourself rather than the deeds that are being done.

Who cares what people believe in? It could be Satan, God, spaghetti monsters, aliens... people will worship as they will in their private times regardless. It is actions that I care about, and if I were to spend time preaching that you have to worship my spiritual choices then it would help to blind everyone to my actions and the evil actions of others.

I hope that makes sense. Thank you for the input.

Hi Kyler,

You will never be put through more than you can handle. With darkness, It may seem like a higher amount of worry, concern and unhappiness over powering, it feels like too much.

There will come a time, may not be right now, but with time, the wounds and the anger will heal, you'll find that something that causes you to believe in a higher spiritual power (not humans), and you may refer to it as any name you see fit.

I prefer to think of humans as Gods, and to mock the seemingly non-existent one that others try to push on me. I don't mock others, but the God they claim is out there watching over us while doing nothing is worthy of being mocked if that is the case. Perhaps if he is out there he shall return and smite the sinners, like the many different religious texts claim.

I cannot comment on religion. I know a number of people who find great consolation in having a deep faith. Equally, I know others whose beliefs are of a more personal God, within, who does not direct events.

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on March 28, 2020:

This poem is straight to God, about him and for him. Born of his supposed teachings, allegedly recalled and written by man. I don't appreciate the invalidation, but the misplaced sentiment is favored as a comment regardless.

Lorna Lamon on March 28, 2020:

I see this poem as anger Kyler, not necessarily about God. However, heinous crimes are committed in the name of God and that is down to human beings. Just my opinion. Take care.

Kyler J Falk (author) from Corona, CA on March 28, 2020:

Yes, of course, God doesn't take credit for the bad. I already know that, it is what helped inspire the poem. Let me bask in the pain and indignation that the paradoxes and hypocrisy of religion cause me, no need to twist the religious knife in my side using more religion.

Then again, by making this public I am asking for it. It is all poetry, and I thank you for your contribution to it.

I am so sorry for your lament. I feel your pain and know you are indignant for just reasons. But I do think you have missed the message of God. He gives you the free will to say and do as you please. He forces no bowing or groveling. He isn't looking down, he is here with us.

Blessings,

Denise
