I'm sorry we are not of a God
who is more proactive
and less hands-off concerning
the aid we need to live
but nothing we do is perfect enough
to amend and to atone and gain grace
not even a graduated approach moves the heartlessness
of a God who is all or nothing
the old saying says "God's Will is our woe"
I wish I were settled enough in my soul
to bear this fatal view of God's so-called
love and wholeness and harmony and goodness
I'm sorry we are of God if this is how it is
where pain and suffering is considered a blessing
