    What a wonderful piece that conveys the undeniable truth. There is a God whose law is written on the stars and the hearts of men. Thanks a lot! (Report) Reply

    An excellent poem Adeline and very well written in
    short verses. Surely there is a God who knows it
    all and who also rules the Earth. Well done my poet

    : -) A free for all. A chaotic world. Every man for himself. No datum or yardstick, everything subjective & interpreted as per one's own convenience. Too true! ! (Report) Reply

    I believe that if there was no god, there would be no war, scientific advancements would come uncontrollably, there would less racism, and man would be able to look at the stars and not think of letting god do all the work but helping to move humanity forward. (Report) Reply

    If there be a God he needs to make an appearance now. We and nature are in dire straits.
    A truly provocative poem of depth..My faith is in an uneasy mode (Report) Reply
