Hi Sulaymon, I like the theme of your poem. It touches on some important ideas which have deep repercussions. It immediately reminded me of a quote by Martin Lurther -
“Christ is an astounding king, who instead of defending his people, deserts them. Whom he would save, he must first make a despairing sinner. Whom he would make wise, he must first make into a fool. Whom he would make alive, he must first kill. Whom he would bring to honour, he must first bring into dishonour. He is a strange king who is nearest when he is far and farthest when he is near”. Best wishes, Peter.
