Hopes, Dreams, and other Failures

I wish it were, I wish it right

That there would be a God tonight

But all I see is misery,

Nothing Godly do I see


I have a hope and I have a prayer

That into God’s eyes we stare

But I see nothing but a dream

Sometimes just a religious scheme


To tie people together here and there

Although these messages go nowhere

Something holy, what are the odds

Statistics only, to give us positive nods


Just a chance our hopes align for us

We cling to good occurrence with lust

Say it’s His will given to us this day

When it’s just as likely to be a stray


While we create crime and bloody scenes

Tell me what a disaster means

Why a sickness kills thousands off

Do our thoughts of a God be scoffed


Nay, we continue to believe in a myth

A million years that we’ve been with

We hope and pray that someone’s there

But in truth there is no one aware


A rock will roll and crush our skulls

A passing viewer, our death he mulls

And he may say that it is God’s will

When in truth, it was caused by a hill


And a bit of rock, millions of years old

But on his word, religious is sold

Billions of years before wishful thought

But the world continued did it not?


We write books to explain what we don’t know

Justifying the way we hope it will go

Just a wish repeated endlessly

And watching ahead for what we want to see


But like a bold lie told many times

They have no truth when set to rhymes

Just an intended repeat of deceptions heard

The often repeated dream set to word.

  1. I can’t help thinking that it is extremely arrogant of us to believe that we are ‘the chosen ones’ out of the billions and billions and billions of planets out there. The odds are very very remote that any planet has developed life (the scientific view), but out of all of these planets, surely an accident can happen more than once? 😉

  2. Oh, and by the way, Thanks wholeheartedly for reading my blog, I was beginning to think that it no more than self-flagellation. 🙂

  3. I feel I understand your sentiments, Barbara, yet

    To me, it’s extremely illogical to say there’s no God—no creator of the universe—to think that all this just “happened”

    And, on the question of why Bad if God is Good—we have free will—imagine if we didn’t
