So Thoughtless Are We

Easily God is with us to please.
Caring that our needs are met.
With those dreams wished delivered...
To get and quickly forget,
How to us they came.

Like the rain does not replenish.
Or nourishes to sustain.

Easily God is there to forgive,
Those who maintain a faith.
Although allowing all,
To run into walls and make mistakes.

God understands this!
God knows what is in His or Her power,
To create.
For purposes to celebrate.
Hoping to correct,
Our reasons to hate.

But we seem so unconscious,
Of this miracle of life we have.
So thoughtless are we,
We actually believe...
God is a figment of our fantasies.

We seem so unconscious,
Of Mother Nature and of Earth.
As if 'scientists' made the Moon, Stars and Sun.
And they've proclaimed our lives the center of it.
As if our lives here on Earth...
Are the only ones lived,
In this 'massive' Universe.
Where needs to feed,
Understandings with a thirst.

With some isolated to debate their fates.
Wanting to be,
The only ones who are chosen to be 'first'.

Not only are our minds blinded...
But our eyes deceive,
Just to tease these selfish greeds.

Easily God is with us to please.
Caring that our needs are met.
With those dreams wished delivered...
To get and quickly forget,
How to us they came.

Like the rain does not replenish.
Or nourishes to sustain.

Easily God is there to forgive,
Those who maintain a faith.
But make mistakes.

God understands this!

God knows what is in His or Her power,
To create.
God gives.
And only from us God can take!
So much.

And yet...
Surprise us with much more.
If we accept and appreciate,
Why we are here.
And 'WHO' and 'WHAT' IT is,
Our lives are lived here for!

'Place no other gods before ME!
That's ALL I ask!
How difficult 'is' that task? '
