Day 14 – God’s View (Persona Poem)

Hello again! Time is running out to get to the nitty-gritty task of posting some of the backlogged, journal-jotted poems for NaPoWriMo – and believe me, writing 30 poems in 30 days IS a challenge! More so than I thought it would be, and I am looking forward to staring the writing course I have signed up for – but best I keep to one thing at a time. I have tried to keep to the NaPoWriMo blog’s optional prompts, but there were a couple that I decided against and did my own thing for… Again, I hope you enjoy my musings!

Today’s Prompt: Write a Persona Poem (a poem written in the voice of someone else such as a superhero, super-villain – or God!) This was super-hard!

God’s View

By Angel Dawson

I see them rushing as I watch from Heaven,

Billions of people, afraid and forlorn.

So many think that I do not love them,

Yet their pain and suffering leave my heart torn.

Spread the love,, lose the greed, forget hate, plant a seed

Of caring and giving, share some joy, fill a need.

Yes, those who are at peace with their lot in life,

They’ve found me and I’m so grateful they have.

Then there are those who plan nothing but strife,

My son gave his life, yet they remain brats.

Heal the earth, fear ye not, can’t you see all you’ve got?

I gave you a world, you’re ruining the lot…

They tire me out with their wants, schemes and demands –

Those with the most seem to want even more.

And they rarely follow my few commands,

Being God to these folks leaves me quite heartsore…

About One Day Closer To My Dream Life

Hi, I'm Angel, and I'm so glad you stopped by. Although Life took me down another road, since childhood I have loved writing and the power of language to evoke feelings and memories, to communicate with the hundreds of people we come into contact with and build relationships with along the way, and to impart ideas with. It's high time that I reunite with my old pleasure and passion, and start writing down all those words that are rushing around aimlessly in my head, jostling with each other to be heard. Sometimes we most fear doing what we love most in case it doesn't work out as we hope, but sometimes we just need to take that chance regardless! Who knows, maybe those words and plots and characters will take me on a journey that others will get to share with me, and lead me one step closer to living my dream life... I hope so!
