Puppet Master

I lay here and wonder how He could cast,
Armies of puppets to spill so much blood.
Homes built on ashes from generations past,
And our children victims of His terrible flood.

I sit here and ponder why He exists,
And controls the fate of all.
Strings attached to all of our wrists,
And if they weren't there, would we fall?

I stand and declare His existence extinct,
His holy wars valid no more.
And His' puppets never to be inked,
With questions of, "Whom are we fighting for?"

Lastly, I present You with a glimmer of hope,
Since He 's no longer above your head.
Seek You and Us when with life we must cope,
For He has packed up His show and fled.

this was one of my top favorite poems of yours, i'm glad to see that you're still writing and proud to see that you have your work published in other sites besides deviant
as for the poem, i like the concept
how you use puppets as a metaphor for faith is interesting and accurate, considering how it feels like people nowadays (or in reality) have always been dictated by religion

Wow, this is really interesting. Though, being a ' Jesus Freak', I could debate about this. =P It's not right though, how someone pits all the blame of bad things against God. A lot of people do this, including me, sometimes. We just always think 'why did God make that happen?' Well, God gave us free will. We're the ones that misuse it and cause these things to happen. We're the ones that follow the whispers of the snake instead of the voice of the lamb. Anyw... (more »)

The idea of an extinct God is just so intriguing, but we've all been thought that God is always there, so keep this argument away from religions or things can get super scandalous!

I know i struggled with the existence of god and this poem allows you to relate to that inner struggle for faith.
This is a very powerful piece
