I Asked God A Question

I asked God a question
I would only trust to Him:
Where does human life
Begin?
Is it precisely in the womb?
Twinkle of eyes?
Perhaps somewhere nearer Him,
Where souls first formed
And angles sing His praise,
Sing of eternal love,
Before gifted to earth
Is all conceived first above?
Not simply generically,
But every speck of destiny—
From Big Bang
To Lemon Meringue—
I am told
That I have Free Will,
And yet at times compelled
I sense my truth less free
And more
Carbon copy
A die of me….

    Is that – Lemon Meringue perfection or flopped Joe ? Hey I’d love a piece right now!
    I love this piece! I ask God questions too, and lately been thinking too much!
    This week I’m going to go foggy brained and drift like a cloud – smiles Joe.
    First of all though, I will ponder your poem tonight.
    There must be more to the flash bang than the twinkle ?
    Our truth is a strange thing to ponder – its all made up of words we learn and form in the way we perceive to be closest to our centre being, but we question our own perception because afterall said and done we are individually strange concepts of self, and we see many sides and many truths. Free will – well the more we try and exercise it the more we can alienate ?
    We kind of get brought back into the narrow field unless we choose to be rebels extraordinaire, and then our sanity is questioned ! A die of me is a profound line – I love it.
    Joe, truly a wonderful piece oxo

    ps – love, should be the gift to the gift that a baby is.

  • Hi Del. I often have problems with the Free Will thing. To really have it, we would need to have created ourselves entirely along with our environment, including the earth. We either do not have it, or God and our relationship with Him is a lot more complex than most religions allow. While I consider myself a Christian, follower of Chirst, I am excluded from mainstream Christian faiths because of my firm belief in Reincarnation and Karma. Most Christians I know consider my form of Christian Mysticism a cult, having received from them many a lecture and condemnation. Not that I go around touting my beliefs for converts, but the way one relates to God (or doesn’t) becomes the foundation for all of his behavior along with how he thinks and feels. Thank you for you fine comments.
