QUESTIONS FOR GOD

Listen up God,
I know you've long been a deaf
And I'm not wrong because
you've not been answering our prayers.

I'll just pretend you're hearing me,
'Cause sometimes I got nobody to talk to
So I put my sadness in a poem.
I got a lot of questions though,
But I'll stick to the few I prioritize.

Why am I here in the first place
If life was meant to be brief and then
I join the marathon and race down to death?

What will happen when I die?
Is there another phase?
It's not like I expect a thing from you
I can't trust you anymore,
You that take the life of an innocent child.

If there is no afterlife,
What's the essence that
people put their Faith in you?

Hey listen God!
I'll also like to question your benevolence.
Why do you let people suffer,
When they say you can handle all things
With the flick of a wand,
Doesn't it prove you don't exist?
I had a friend who finally took his life
Because he couldn't stand the pains no more,
I've been on the course a few times,
I only stopped cause I finally accepted you're useless
And that life is short, since I love Plays
I'll rather see how the drama ends.

Omnipotent you're so impotent,
Why is it that those that serve die of disease,
And hunger, and though they pray,
You never hear them,
And let the preachers steal from these people?

Was your religions created to enrich a few
that feed off the fears of the majority?
A rich man is scared of getting broke
So he brings his coin to the alter.
The old don't want to die, they bring their coin to the alter,
The sick don't want to die, he brings his coin to the alter,
Do they really need to live in fear?
Don't lie to me, is the Devil real?
Is it you?
The different side of the same coin?

I'm a skeptic and so your flame is made for me
But I'm a Nigerian, so I'm not scared,
Cause I been in Hell all my life.

How can you be all-knowing,
Claiming that I'm made in your image
But hate that I have to think?
Why you gave me a brain and ask me to believe,
And hate the fact that I want to know?

Hey broo, before you turn the fire on
At least tell me how long I'm gon' live?
Am I gon die broke,
Oh no! That's the only shit that scares me.

Is 2Pac and Biggy in Hell?
If they are, I'm gon be humble for a bit
To make this request...
When I get to Hell,
will you at least put us in the same city?

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Review Request (Direction): 
What did you think of my title?
How was my language use?
What did you think of the rhythm or pattern or pacing?
How does this theme appeal to you?
How was the beginning/ending of the poem?
Is the internal logic consistent?

Some pretty heavy questions, which of course no one can truly answer.

The most powerful reaction
of mind on mind
is transference of sight

Why am I here in the first place
If life was meant to be brief and then
I join the marathon and race down to death.....
