God’s Existence Or Fable?

The man-made writings were written within,

were written therein, and were written without

truth throughout the Bible of Christians, no god

sent for prophets to prove his existence, why would he?

False as reprobate tin to sell mankind lies, to embellish

lore as a foreboding truism, to enable fiction as a revelation,

and to bind myth as some preamble repentance for being born

upon this desolate rock of truth; if some lone gargantuan god

exists, he need not mystery and questionable self-sacrificing

praise to some master or landlord of debt, he would shepherd

humankind with eternal love, bless his own creation with abundant

caressing, but never persecute them with unending labyrinths, enigmatic

riddles, and purging parables, he simply would be our forgiving father and

make us all gods with immortality.

About this poem

Man writes many stories, embellished to high Heaven stories, so, why should I believe a fairytale?
