    God reached into the nothingness
    And pull out absolutely everything
    Are you not a part of this vast creation?
    So how do you begin to question him?


    The clay does not ask the potter,
    'What are you sculpting me into today?'
    The bricks do not ask the mason,
    ‘What shall our formation be today?


    The product does not say to its maker,
    ‘I am not satisfied with the results’
    The blueprint does not say to its architect,
    ‘I am not sure of the accuracy of the design’


    The infant does not say to his mother,
    'Why are you giving birth to me?' "
    The child does not say to his father,
    'Why are you giving me life?


    But we feel they God owes us clarification
    We have the audacity to ask for justification
    As if He needs our blessing upon His plans
    When will we learn God has the last say so?

    I suppose we feel as though we run the show. But how often we get reminded of the true power. What strength your words have.

    he gave us free will, therefore we can question

    however it is true when we ask what is the wisdom of asking the creator why

    or are we asking questions for our own understanding

    From where does the question come

    I like the write and the willingness to question the audacity of the question

    and keep writing

    This ma sound a bit bizarre
    but..
    For God Sakes...
    I hope so
    Too many times
    We take Him for granted
    Then turn around and contemplate
    Abandonment?
    How dare the People
    Who gives thee
    The breath to breathe
    the Mind to actually think
    of such a horrible thing
    A horrible feeling
    It has to be
    To know your children would
    Curse you out
    Repeat your name in vain
    then deny you for satan
    but still think all is well
    When the end comes to whom they would sail
    with no remorse for the past
    But demanding That pass
    The gates of forever
    Nevermind your Love
    Everything you Blessed for me
    Just lets get it on the road
    Oh yeah thanx for keeping me
    Outta Hell I woulda been mad if you didn't
    Newayz whats a hell
    Why'd you make it
    the question he might ask you is
    "Who are YOU really????"
    Who are you???????

    Hey asimplepoet
    A person, who wants to know how with out studying.
    Will never learn how they got the answer, if the problem comes up again.
    There is no short cut. Like the bowl.
    If it wasn't for the potter taking the time to learn how to make
    the bowl from clay, then it would just be clay.
    All the answer to our question is there just Believe
    I enoyed all the avenues your poem have taken me

    Peace~N~Love
