God Knows

God knows,

Each star by name

each grain of sand.

Every thought in man's head.

He must be very patient-

To love those who question Him without respect.

And hate the One who died to save them.

After all, who are we?

There is war, suffering, hatred, famine.

We do this to ourselves and blame God for it.

And then demand an answer-

A quick fix-it.

We demand acceptance for our sins,

When we wouldn't accept others to sin against us?

When what we need to be is penitent and humble.

Opening our heart to the purest and

most generous form of Love there is.
