If I were to argue with God
stage a debate
would I so blithely say
“It is better to be more oblivious than I”
because I choose to complain
about whatever suffering
I might know of firsthand?
What would I begin to know, then
about the so many so-wounded walking
crawling sitting dying spinning
through the span of their lifetime?
Humility, having known nothing else through all of those years
Mother used me in place of herself
to keep her own devil away,
now comes to me through a hot
Given that unknown to most these are the darkest hours
of humankind’s history
Given that suffering belongs to all of us
Given that suffering now serves no purpose I can think of
except to awaken the sense that nobody suffers alone
it is most hard to know this
I forgo such debate.
I would appear most ungrateful
should I attend.
An article not to be forgotten!!!
