No God

I can write many things, but poems is definitely not one of them. So here is a poem from the site’s old friend, Emma. Enjoy.
Who can say why I disbelieve
All the make-believe only time
And who can say why I feel the need
A new path to lead only time
Who can say why they tell the lies
The truth disguise only time
And who can say when I will heal
From the ordeal only time
Who can say why they insist
A god exists only time
And who can say why I resist
Don’t believe in myths only time
Who can say only time
Who can say when I will be free
Live as I want to be only time
Who knows what tomorrow will hold
What will unfold only time
Who can say only time
No God

First they came for me

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
