Best Poem of Adeline Foster

~if There Be No God

If there be no God,
Then all the stars, that in their place
Have aeons roamed abroad,
Would long ago have lost the trace
Of orbits-if there be no God.

If there be no God,
Then justice in the heart of man
Would be a fake-a senseless fraud;
Each for himself alone would stand-
No honor-if there be no God.

Read the full of ~if There Be No God

~to See

I saw a man unreasoning
Yet sure that he was right,
Unable to admit that some
Possess a different sight.

I threw a thought out to the world;
A different way of seeing,
And to my lintel they converged
To condemn my very being.

[Hata Bildir]
