Without You

A Poem by Kwiksie Ifediora
"

...ponder on just how big a mess we'd all be in, if God didn't bother to intervene in our lives on a daily basis...

"


It’s the bruised heart, the fear filled eyes

The trembling fingers and shattered self-pride.

 

It’s the loneliness and desolation, the hunger that’s feeding a whole nation.

The cries of the aged one, the silence of the still born.

 

It’s the pain and the bitterness; it’s the scars that are hidden.

The tolerance of hate and the incessant fighting.

 

It’s the wrong and the cruel, the folly obedient mule

It’s the welcome of bedlam and the art of being inhuman.

 

It’s the rape of the truth and discernment’s absence.

The distortion of what’s honest, the diversion of the relevant.

 

It’s the sound of death and they who live in it.

The weighty emptiness, the feeling of numbness.

 

It’s the worst thing imaginable, what we have brought upon us

Because we mete out irreverence to you in whose love we can trust.

 

It’s what our temporary dwelling and its inhabitants go through,

But this is the Good News…there will Always be you.

Life without God is like an un-sharpened pencil; it has no point. Nice work there

Thanks Rita, thank you for reading. :)
What would become of us if God turned His back on us? The very thought makes me shudder with horror.

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

You have penned a magnificent, thought provoking piece, my friend.

Thank YOU for reading and for your kind words Glitch. :)
A powerful poem. Our world uncontrolled and moving in the wrong direction. I wish we could stop the craziness and begin somewhere where men are not aiming guns at each other and greed is the only purpose. I agree with your thoughts. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.
