NOTE: Word-of-mouth is the only advertising I have ever done and I thank those who have spread the word. I do not spend money advertising. I do not ask for donations. My poems are free so that even the poorest of the poor can be comforted with my poetry. I am pleased when others are blessed. No amount of money can surpass that. I am now blessed with over 10,000 page views per month and my prayer is that through my poetry, that this world can become a safer, more loving and respectful place - that those who do not know who Jesus really was, will come to know the peace, healing, sacrifice and grace He has given to those who truly believe in Him and faithfully follow. I pray that you enjoy my story poems...

If I Were God.... 1-19-2009

Bad things happen every day,
on waves and solid sod -
This world is in such disarray -
but not if I were God.

People fall off mountains -
People fall in ditches -
People fall for anything -
but not if I were God.

People will get greedy -
People will get sad -
People will get lonely -
but not if I were God.

People get diseases -
People get depressed.
People get so bothered -
but not if I were God.

People hurt so often -
People hurt so much -
People hurt each other -
but not if I were God.

No, if I were God,
there'd be no mountains.
there'd be no valleys,
lakes or drinking fountains.

No one would fall off of,
fall into, or drown.
No, if I were God,
you'd never, ever frown.

If I were God,
there'd be 'garden of Eden',
all would be happy,
with nobody leavin'.

If I were God,
you could do what you please,
there wouldn't be plagues,
locusts or fleas.

Yes, if I were God,
you'd sing la-la-la,
because I'd create
utopia.

Don't worry that you'd never be challenged.
Don't worry that you'd get a bit bored.
Don't worry that you'd be a robot -
with brains as dense as a board.

So did God have other intentions?
Does 'free will' mean much at all?
Did Jesus give us a challenge?
And are we to answer His call?
