Dear Allah A Poem
Written by Hassan. A narration by Nesrin.
I hope you get this letter, as Im in a great deal of doubt.
I dont get your Divine Plan, whats it all about?
There you are, before a creation to fill
Nothing but Allah, he, himself and his will,
Perhaps you were lonely, though even then you knew.
Youd create angels, to obey and worship you.
Maybe this wasnt enough, you were not amused,
But why you created Satan, just leaves me bemused
You gave man a mind and a freewill to choose
Then demanded he believe in irrational, contradictory clues
While keeping yourself hidden from all verification
Threatening torture if we dont prostrate in supplication
You sent prophets and books to a patch of land
And miracles galore to that sacred area of sand
But before man can scientifically record and corroborate
You decide communications must now mysteriously terminate
You say you are testing mankind to see who is true
Though saint and sinner, you already knew
But worse than this is the consequence of this test
Its results are iniquitous perverse at best
Those, who accept on faith, myths handed down
Will enjoy eternal bliss and never have to frown
While those who insist on reasoning with their brain
Will be sent to the fire of Hell to suffer eternal pain
Dear Allah none of this makes sense to me
Please tell me if there is something Ive failed to see
And I dont understand when so many suffer and die
What is the reason I cannot see why?
Was it a test for the baby, her father or mother
Or was she sacrificed to test someone other?
When you planned all this did you count every tear
Was your ultimate purpose that we tremble in fear
And when all are in Heaven or Hell as dictated by fate
Will you sit back on your throne to shouts of Allah is Great?
I don't think so ;)
An Einstein or Newton to give opinion on outpourings of "every Tom, Dick and Harry"
Have you no other occupation than to search for obscure poems form more obscure poets?
