Save Me

August 12, 2010

Why would I be saved
From this pit that has caved?
Why would I be freed
From this ground with no seed?
Why would He care
About this man so unfair?
Why would He seek
One with morals so weak?
Why would I be safe
From those with no faith?
Why would you kill
With your goddamn free will?
Why have I left
From this bitter-sweet theft?
Why have we sinned
And let had our beliefs so thinned?

    Mark, your poems scream out to the readers! They force a reader to get absorbed in them… completely!
    This is such a poignant poem…
    “Why would you kill
    With your goddamn free will?” — pretty much sums up the the destiny of religion these days… all the slaughter and evil, in the name of religion! It is all so ironic!

    This is an amazing read!!

    Wow… a lot here to think about.


  16. The wonders of the world handled so delicately. I believe there is no wrong or right religion. Just those who believe their religion to be atop all others. That’s when things become dangerous when the world supplies to “justified” to throw their blanket of religion on others by any means necessary. I admire that all your questions were referred back to you as if you were searching from the heart and not searching for the right answer.

    Great poem. Strong emotion and I like the questioning format, it forces the reader to get involved and ask themselves these tough questions.
