Nobody Loves Jesus Anymore

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Did Jesus Fail Humanity?

Did Jesus Fail Humanity?

Please Jesus, save my dying mother.

Mother dies.

Nobody loves Jesus anymore

Oh father, I beg you to heal my pain

Pain worsens.

Nobody likes Jesus anymore.

Kids going on excursion singing gospel songs.

Bus explodes, kids die.

Nobody loves Jesus anymore

Wickedness pushes away grace

They say he works in mysterious ways

Mysterious it is indeed

Because he would let a little boy bleed

Hungry kids dying

Fat politicians living

Crosses affix on church roofs

No Christian to stop a projectile, seems the Bible isn’t bullet proof

Offerings and tides

Large worship buildings so high

But what matters most to the core

Is that nobody loves Jesus anymore.


Sing praises, sing songs.

But Jesus will not save you in an Alley when a killer is doing wrong.

Shout his name, shout it loud.

But your farm will still wither away because of the drought.

Where crosses, get holy water and olive oil.

Demons will still drag you under the soil.

Evil comes, evil goes, evil kicks open your door.

Family dies.

Nobody loves Jesus anymore.

a grieving little girl needs a organ transplant.

Without cash she can't.

Now the bank forecloses on her home.

Stress kicks open her fathers dome.

He tries to rob a liquor store.

But in his head a bullet bores.

The child hears the news, drops and dies on the floor.

Nobody loves Jesus anymore.


Mankind has no savior, no champion.

We have no Messiah, no superman

We are doomed to suffer by the hands of human beings

Because Jesus as totally neglected this plain it seems.

Oh, yes we do love Him! Man is just inherently evil. Just stopping by...

Flourish, Thank you Madam.

This is a very good poem, and I think many people think Jesus is unavailable when they have some serious problem.

We were born with free will however, and I think Jesus is as close as we believe he is but not because he answers every prayer. Many bad things that happen to us are due to our own choices. I have seen prayers answered many times though, so despite the awful mess in our world, I choose to believe.

I enjoyed the realism of this sad poem, greatly written.

I LOVE the beat of this poem. I rarely come across one with such a good rhythm! Good message, too, though some could argue that Jesus isn't responsible for the bad things that happen in the world, only people. I appreciate that it's easy to blame God when bad things happen, because since He is omnipotent, surely He could protect His children. I love this poem, what a great rhythm to it. Excellent work.
