Welcome to the court of playful creativity
Judge “please don’t punish me for this poem” residing
Here is a subpoena for the father Almighty to take the stand
So state your name for the court
I am who I am
The Father almighty
Creator of heaven and earth
Of all that is seen and unseen
Begotten not made …
Yes we know the drill
Save us some tax payer’s money and just state how you plead
Whats my charge
Creating the world so that it was doomed to fail
The world I created is a perfect one
It is my people who fail to reclaim perfection
Objection if it pleases the court
The witness is not stating his plea
He is making a statement
Dude he is God
He makes more than just statements
Get on with it before he decides
To bring judgment day ahead of schedule
Okay on with it
So God …
DO NOT SAY MY NAME IN VAIN
If you have a question ASK
AND IT SHALL BE RESPONDED TO
Okay moving on
The question is why did you create the world?
Or rather why did you create people
If you knew they would disobey you anyway?
Why put the devil on earth
If you knew he’d seduce people away from you?
Why allow things to happen the way they happened?
Why not just create a perfect world
And let it remain a perfect world?
Why Why Why?
The question is why?
Yes the question is why
Why did I make you in my own image?
Not so you may be just like me?
Why did I give you a soul?
Not so you can communicate directly in spirit to me?
Why did I give you a mind?
Not so you can think, choose and decide?
Why did I give you a heart?
Not so you can feel, care and love?
And most importantly Why
Why Why Why
Why did I give to the world?
And allow for the world
To torture and crucify
My only begotten son
And have him die for your sins
And then resurrect him
Is it not so that WHOM SO EVER BELIEVES IN HIM
SHALL NOT PERISH
BUT INHERIT ETERNAL LIFE?
Yes father it is so . . .
Then why do you not love and feel and care for others?
Even though I gave you the heart for it?
Why do you not choose to communicate with me constantly?
Even though you have the mind and soul for it?
Why do you not believe in Jesus?
When you know through him you will inherit eternal life?
Who should be on trial here mmm?
The people rest your honor, all charges dropped
Therefore it is this courts ruling
That from this day fourth
There shall be no more questioning of God
It is we the people who failed him
And so it is we who shall face judgment
How do you plead?
Heaven bound or hell bent?
