What do you think this poem is about?

For Example: love, art, fashion, friendship and etc.


Can I not cause disaster,
or joyfull birth at my whim?

Am I not Our God within?

Can I not cut down the stoutest tree,
and nurture the most vulnerable seed,

For the God I need?

Stands for the weakest man,

regardless of belief or colour of skin,

It being the most Human thing.

Such a compassionate God could do.

Whilst respecting,

Our God within You.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Written as a response to reading 'The Rythm of Time' by the poet Bobby Sands.

I am trying to say that we all have a common urge to care for and nurture the truth. We all carry a version of our God within us. When we take away violence and hate, we are all the same whilst remaining our own unique expression of unconditional love.

    A very deep and expressive write as menioned by the Hon'ble poets. Emotions of any one can not be denied as manifest the concluding line of the poem. A great write.

    Excellent flow of words from your pen. God is within us. But when we get caught in this magical world, we are unable to show our love hidden in depth of our Soul. I loved reading each lines. Thanks for sharing with us.

    Consider it done Babatunde. Thank you.

    Well captured. There is God inside us but the issue is that many fail to activate His virtues. pls edit 'kin' to read 'skin'

    God is the love we have inside of us all, but life gets in the way and we are at times unable to show our gift of love hidden in the depths of our souls!
    Inspired write!

    A fine insight of the love or need to love each other. Bobby Sands had a love of god, but the love of each other and of the world is not restricted to theists, but a common core within all decent people. Excellent ideas and structure to this piece.

    This is really 1 and unique. For the God we need, we should cut down on lots of things. if we really meant to have the lord
    very nice Anthony, very nice

    Excellent poem, and note about the meaning of the poem. So very well said; I whole-heartedly agree.
    Humanity is in many ways a real mystery, yet not one beyond the grasp of our seeing, as we are able to see in a world that often times harbors much trouble and pain.
    Great writing here, as usual, Anthony.
