"My God Is." "No My God Is!"

"My God Is." "No My God Is!"

A Poem by JenLyn

People say they believe

People say they have faith

Then they go and preach hate.

 

“My God is the God”

“No My God Is”

“I think my God is his.”

 

People tell me are you awake?

People, you are allowed mistakes.

Just please stop all the hate!

 

“My God is white”

“My God is black”

“I still think my God is his”

 

People make up your mind.

People unlike you, God was kind.

Please put down your stupid signs!!!

 

“My God is Republican."

“My God is Democrat."

“I think my God is a Repubocrat.”

 

People, please put down your bats!

People, you’re better than that!

Don’t even know who you’re yelling at!

 

“My God hates you!”

“Well, My God hates you too!”

“My God hates me.”

 

People just open your eyes to see.

People please just let it all be.

Just allow yourself to be free.

 

“My God will kill you!”

“My God will kill you too!”

“My God wants me to commit suicide.”

 

People, you’re all dense.

People, you all make me tense.

None of you make a bit of damn sense!

 

“My God is Jewish”

“My God is American”

“My God could be Hungarian.”

 

People you all praise the same thing.

People, you should all be ashamed.

You, yourselves are too blame.

 

Because you see, God is not white. God is not black. God is none of that.

 

God is your heart and soul.

God is what makes you whole.

God is what allows you to grow.

 

People, please put down your guns.

People just let it all be done.

It’ll be nice to see people, not on the run.

 

God wants you to love not hate.

God wants you to accept and appreciate.

God wants you to fulfill your fate.

 

So stop debating which God you’re praising.

So stop all of the rating and the hazing.

Just be thankful that God thinks you’re worth saving.

This is in no way one of my better poems but I wrote it because of all of the protests and hate, over the health care reform bill and well the fact that most people are just ignorant when it comes to religion and politics.

This piece speaks for many people. It is true that people are fighting over the health care reform, and maybe if they all grew up and noticed what was actually going. Then the argument would be over.Oh, I almost forgot Dread Solomon has a point, what does 'My God is his? And people are to blame'

Personally i'm an atheist but i actually really like this poem. You captured all the frustration i feel when people fight over what others believe. Some believe some things, others believe others, but its a personal choice, we shouldn't force our opinions on others.

Hmm I loved this. Everything about it. Hate the fact that people fight over religion and think of this and that, sometimes, well, most of the time it's not even worth fighting about, so I don't get why they even have to start wars and all that o.o Yep I do agree with Liza, this is a very smart and well written poem. And also with Zeitgeist, it's awesome and epic :D Very powerful indeed :)

very smart and well written poem showing the sides of what people perceive as God and use the word to justify the means or entice power and righteousness

Congratulations! This poem deserves all the attention because it speaks about reconciliation, love and peace. It should be recommended to many people to read, the whole year round. Me favorite lines are the following:“My God hates you!”, “Well, My God hates you too!”,“My God hates me.”. I found these somehow very witty and hitting to the point. Thank you very for sharing this to us.

Way to go!! I was actually thrilled to read it, such contradiction and yet such obvious veracity. Brrrrilliant.

People tell me are you awake?

Just please stop all the hate!

I loved that line above all. The whole thing was well structured and simply beautiful, with a spiritual message in it all. Simply inspiring.

There are two issues that annoy me well in this reality world: Politics and Religious. Especially in religious matter, I can't take on people trying to 'prove' how good their 'God' is. Everyone has their faith and belief, so why can't just keep that way? I like how you express the matters in here. Really interesting and thoughtful.

I love this, not only because is really good written but also because it talks about something that we see everyday in life. Like the person under me said, this speaks for a lot of people. My favorite part is this one :

“My God is Republican."

“My God is Democrat."

“I think my God is a Repubocrat.”

That part caught my attention a lot ;

You did a great Job; Keep it up

I really like this. It's bold.
Religion isn't my area of choice but I thoroughly enjoyed this write.
