Unsub

Godlike

This world is my battlefield

A place to exercise my right

Inflicting pain as I see fit

On my ignorant throne I sit

 

This life is my killing zone

A place to deliver my hate

Causing death just for fun

Cowardly hiding behind my gun

 

I am a walking atrocity

You are all in the minority

No challenge will I deny

Those I hate shall die

 

I am crawling monstrosity

Full of confidence & vanity

No fight will I turn down

I am God, here's my crown

 

This earth is my battle zone

A place to exert my strength

Tearing apart all of life

Slashing wildly with my knife

 

My existence is a killing field

A place to abuse my power

Destroying all as I see fit

From my stubborn tower, I spit

    Hello "God",
    So you think that you are going to win!
    I have other ideas.
    You come into MY Universe
    Thinking your "God".
    Well I beg to differ.
    Who do you think created you?
    I did!
    You were just an experiment,
    An experiment that has failed!
    So unless you see the light
    I will change your ways
    To those of joy and love.
    Begone you Devil!

    Good dark write Unsub, you are really back on stream with this one.

      GF,

      I enjoyed this one; so many themes in it that I've forgotten which the real one was now!

      Good write as a poem in itself Unsub. There's different beliefs everywhere, even on this MPS site.
      This could sound more like the God in places of the Old Testament.
      I'm cautious though: 'What a person is before God, that he (or she) is, and no more' as wise St Francis of Assisi said. Best to have humble pie then.

        Orchi,

        MPS is filled to the brim with religious poets; trying to sift through them to find one with an open mind is not so easy as the moment you question them they block, ban & ignore you!

        Thanks for reading,

        Unsub.

          Well yes. On a secular 'away day' at work it got rather religious. The manageress was a minister's wife; a guest speaker who almost gave a sermon was a retired Minister, another speaker led a church youth group, and the wife of one of them did a bit of conversion practice on an agnostic.We couldn't escape, except jump in the river, as we were all on a boat! heehee.
          I suppose it works both way - religious needing to be open to non-religious, and vice versa. I don't aim to force it on anyone.

          This is really thought provoking.

          'God-like'

          'God-like' Seems to be a description of humans?

            sylvia,

            God-like = humans? Maybe! You decide!

            Unsub,

            I get the message the poem is conveying. There are two things that I don’t get.
            Why is this godlike figure’s throne ignorant? And why is he/she “cowardly hiding behind my gun”? Perhaps it’s not a God after all!
            A lot to think about!

            As always...

              Laura,

              think you answered your own question!

              Unsub.

                Bingo!!
