God and Me: A Poem with a Dash of Humor

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Some say that God is real -- others say not

but punishment comes more than blessing

maybe so imperfect we don't deserve a lot

a food for thought, much more for guessing.

I don't go to church since He is everywhere

He is in me so much more than I am in Him

that attendance would not show how I care

but I may visit some day out of sheer whim.

I don't understand why people pray

knowing that we reap whatever we sow

since we are responsible in life every way

so what's there that God should by prayer know.

God is not an egomaniac to demand His glory

not being "in our own image" all that much

so to appease Him is not really my worry

as our two egos are not in any touch.

Well, don't let me kid you, I've got my own belief

while outside any religion I believe in a "god"

but that's the theme where I can't go brief

anyway you may see it somewhat odd.

To me it's universal consciousness, nothing more

unfathomable and way too much for me to "know"

while pretending is something I won't go for

so everything beyond that is a show.

But don't take any of this wrong

I do respect others' convictions

with which I just can't go along

I got my own mental addictions.
