Poem: Unmystified

I hoped that trip to save my faith.

I thought giving my everything would renew my beliefs.

I thought hearing the stories of god’s power would hold me to the throne.

I thought I would witness miracles.

I thought my god would move mountains.

But at every turn I saw his weakness,

And his pride,

And his lack of concern.

I saw his people alone and abandoned.

Myself included.

And if it is human responsibility to bring heaven to earth

Then what is god doing.

I thought my questions would be answered

And they were.

But god did not answer them.
