The first 3 stanzas spoke very strongly to me. I was 'talking back' to the poem as I read it. (Responses were, 'Of course not! Heaven forbid! Hell NO! ') That happens seldom for me. The last verses were not immediately so strong for me. But on second and third read I like them very much. The plaintive tone and slightly sarcastic question is something that comes fairly often to me as I write. I truly resonate to your very serious questions and your topic. Thank you for getting my attention. I cared enough to join the site in order to reply to you.

What a thought provoking poem Jim! Very nice. I often wonder about these things.........Why we are and What we are to God puzzles me. I hope we're judged individually and not as a ''group effort''!

Well Jim, I don't think you have left anything out in this poem. A deeply thought out write, unusual rhyming using the end of each stanza. making a deep read here. Well written, leaving one with that unanswered question - perhaps he'll try some other planet, he's probably had enough of us already. Thanks for putting it on the forum. Love Ernestine XXX
