You Could Be My God

Updated on April 23, 2020
Kyler J Falk profile image

Poetry is turning out to be a very cathartic medium, I should do this more often.

Set the Mood

Source

I sit and watch as they fall in line,

Wanting eternity in paradise sublime.

Eternity you know just isn’t for me,

I’ll live fast in freedom and glee.


For why would I ever want release,

When I can live now in my peace?

Some look upon me and they cry,

Others with hate hoping I die.


Usher me toward the pearly gate,

Sorry but all I can see is hate.

I think I would rather go down the slide,

At least at the bottom I won’t have to hide.


Won’t run from the sins that my heart desires,

At least it is warm down here in the fires.

Enjoy worshiping each and every day,

Eternity for me shall be fun and play.


Make sure when you are looking down,

Like you did in life with a pitiful frown,

That you realize I have no care,

To stare back at you up there.


This is where your God destined I be,

In the lakes of fire for you all to see.

He gave me a chest full of heart,

Dooming me by His word before the start.


So from Him I will always turn,

Laughing away as I burn.

Satan welcomed me into his home,

Never cast a judging stone.


For me Satan wanted to bring joy,

Rather than keeping me as God’s toy.

Satan did not ask for me to kneel,

To turn away from what I feel.


No He said to please embrace,

This is why God gave us this place.

I told Satan to shut his hole,

His words tasted like burning coal.


I live life by my own passion,

Not by the words of petty fashion.

Into the faces of deities I scream,

Why do you have to be so mean?


All you do is beg to be held high,

Content with apathy and spreading lies.

I’ll be here to extinguish the fires of sadness,

The ones deities sow combined with madness.


Listen to the lament in my songs,

Where I go right it is from their wrongs.

Now let us frolic through this field of flowers,

Showing deities we’re the ones with powers.


The power to love and the power to change,

Accepting we’re Gods isn’t so strange.

Now I fall down to your feet,

For without you I'm not complete!

You Are My God

I don't care what you say, for in the face of your own power it does not matter. You are my God and I will bow down at your feet, and unto you I give the power. Power for pleasure, and power for pain, you have it in your hands and how you use it is up to you. Are my Gods benevolent or will your malevolence destroy me by your own will?

Never forget, you can't change the fact that I worship you, humans.

      Of course, Shauna! My love for you is unending as well, and I figured your distance from everything would only be temporary! My posts can be much, especially as it concerns religion and my vitriol for the topic overall. All are welcome to come and express their thoughts, woes, and loves, so long as we can all do so with a smile on our faces and love in our hearts. Fairness, that is what I ask, and you are a fair individual in most every sense of the term.

      My spiritual relationship is one with myself and the world around me, and my battle is against the traumas of what was forced upon me. Unfortunately religion was, and continues to be nothing but traumatic for me.

      Slowly I will heal, and every bit of kindness you show me, every bit of kindness the world shows me, is a step toward that healed state I yearn for.

      Kyler, I left the church long ago because I don't believe in brim and firestone, Heaven and Hell. I believe in me and the relationship I have with a spiritual being that resides in my soul. I don't pray. I talk. I don't worship. I believe (in myself).

      Religion is political. I'm not, but I am spiritual. It comes from within me. Don't come knocking at my door and don't quote scriptures at me. Spirituality is personal and it should be respected as such. I'm not aiming this at you because I feel your angst.

      Sorry, I'm so late to reading this post. Had a busy, stressful week at work and simply chose to stay away from the computer for a bit.

      I still love you, tho. You know that, right?

      As shall I, though I suppose we could say I'm a slave to questions. Then again, aren't we all? I envy those content to stay put in rigidity, it seems so peaceful when observed undisturbed. However, chaos is a spice of life that often offers profound answers which lead to even more profound questions.

      It's a cycle, and I feel that those who don't seek to throw a wrench in it in hopes it stops are also the type to "suffer from an abundance of life."

      Good talking to you, Shannon, and thanks for reading again! Bed time!

      Funny you should use that word because I almost said my thinking is often abstract. Or that it is an abstract concept.

      Haha...I think I'll pass on blindly following anyone, thanks.

      "Abstract Reality" is how I refer to it, but yes, a very fluid concept much like philosophy and science as a whole.

      I strive to always challenge my own thoughts and beliefs, adopting things I don't believe just to taste them. It is a more logical approach, but I try to make it beautiful and artistic.

      To quote myself here: "Science is the act of seeking to disprove your theory. Religion is having faith in what you cannot prove physically. Better to blend the two than blindly follow one."

      Actually, I think you make sense. Unless, of course, I'm misunderstanding. LOL. It's a fluid concept. Much like other philosophical concepts, in my opinion.

      Worship to me could mean having high hopes for, a bit like a parent has for their child, irreplaceable hopes. An undying love, peppered with empathy and pity, one like you have for a pet. It could mean expectation, studying potential and placing capacity on a pedestal. Allowing importance, much like the definition we give to words, but instead allowing existence to define its own importance in the human sense. Perhaps absolution, valuing the fickle nature of humans, and allowing that to be free to flow. Admiration, like one would admire any piece of art. Realization, like standing in awe of a miracle you know comes along only every so often.

      Yet this attempt does the definition of "worship" very little justice because at the same time I agree, I also do not and wish to expand and adapt those further. Hopefully, however, this gives a better view into it.

      Whether we hold humans in high or low regard, we must hold them in some facet of perception as an absolute presence of great sway and power. One that creates, destroys, rebuilds, and so on ad nauseam.

      I'll never hold humans in low regard as a generalization, however, but that is a conversation I won't have in public because very few take a scholarly approach to the topic of humans.

      Okay, then mind trying to explain what you mean? I'll be the first to admit that I often "think" differently than others so hearing your perspective or thought process would be interesting.

      You take the definition of worship in a way I do not mean it. I hate rigid definitions, in almost every sense of semantics, and putting a definition to the term "worship" would be hard even for me as it is quite fluid.

      It is best to take everything you read in my poetry with a grain of salt, I know I do!

      Thanks for reading and the compliments!

      Hi Kyler...scrolling through the email notifications from HP tonight and this title caught my attention. Your take on religion in this poem is rather interesting, though I don't think humans are worth worshipping. Humanity has a lot of good, but humans are also spiteful and sometimes downright hateful. There's a beauty in it because we're all only humans, perhaps perfectly imperfect. But I wouldn't worship a single human being. However, I do enjoy reading your poetry!

      Paula, this is my favorite comment I have ever received on any of my Hubs! A compliment offered with it nonetheless, how splendid!

      My brain has really been churning, and I've been indulging its every whim. What you see is a product of what my brain desires, yes, but is it what I want? Who can say?

      I am quite mad myself, after all!

      Wow, Kyler..........

      This is a hell of a ride, my friend

      I can't be sure how it would end

      First it was up & then you went down

      I'm scratching my head, I have to frown

      Good with words & sharing your mind

      Clearly I see what you hope to find

      If I were a Queen,a scholar or more

      I might read the message on the door

      Alas, I'm a mortal with sins of my own

      So best I keep walking, afraid & alone!

      You are definitely on a roll, Kyler! Bravo!
