If God Existsby E. M. Stinton
said one Muse to another “do you wonder whether God exists?”
head-scratched, she said back nothing to acknowledge it
they huddled with each other, cold atop a monolith
the safest place to wait for fate; the shoulder of apocalypse
the silence broke, she sighed and spoke, “I won’t be drug to argument”
“what else is there to do?” he openly remarked ‘n grinned
“just entertain the thought a bit, it won’t be hard to follow this-
the loss of hope through cause and consequence if we don’t discover God exists.”
“they say that God is love, a thought to us that’s marked anomalous
since every other creature lacks the features love is polished in
love is different than the innocence we readily endow them with
–if animals have the Holy Soul, I’m curious to how it fits.
now let’s think about it, given the cowards in the populace
the liars, killers, hypocrites…if God exists He’s part of all of it.
plus our heinous accomplishments scarred within our hollow skin
have we just forgotten Him? or is this a product of His martyrdom?
did He create us on a whim? He said he had a plan for me
but if my purpose is to worship Him, that sounds a LOT like vanity
on top of this insanity, let’s talk this “infallible” catastrophe
if He’s perfect, why’s His creation nothing short of blasphemy?
it doesn’t add up rationally, with all our evil intentions
our need for repentance is a stain upon the sheen of His essence
and in return for their weaknesses, people are blessed with this brief independence
but I wonder…do you think that we’ll have free will in heaven?
if we won’t, then why is it considered a gift in this life?
and if heaven has free will then it must be full of sin, right?
it just doesn’t fit right, this notion of our freedom
or the concept of a God who’s just there because we need Him
now that we’re in this final season in the shadow of apocalypse
don’t save your breath, our fate is set, so tell me…
do you wonder if God exists?
she paused and let the silence settle to a solemn drip
until a subtle smirk suddenly crept across her lips
“God’s existence is innocuous, so I won’t be cautious with it
you asked ‘if God exists,’ and my answer’s ‘God exists if.’
God exists if we love each other like we love our sons and daughters
God exists if we extend a hand to raise another from the water
God exists if we see beauty in the world’s imperfections
God exists if we can forgive without discerning a lesson
it’s not about how much sense theology makes, or our flaws and mistakes –
anyone that’s been in love has stared their God in the face.
you see our timing as irony while we humor apocalypse
but every smile that I muster up is proof that a God exists
if you’re looking for a truth that’s reflected or imbued in the message
it’s that we are the Gods we look for when we choose to accept it
but I won’t ignore your question, besides reality is something better
if God exists, we create Him…every time we come together
