Removed From Comprehension

We eventually move on,
From the warning of storms.
With our prayers to give,
Within the midst of them.
To become relieved,
Our fears and threats from us disappear.

And yet we stay to remain returning,
To create conflicts.
With a whipping up to stir,
Division and racism to inflict upon others.
Perceiving to believe,
We are immune from these misdeeds.

Ignore we continue a proving we can do,
Whatever we please to feed...
That need to be barbaric.
With a destroying ourselves.
To think we are entitled to have that right.
Whether to perform the act,
Consciously or not freely to display.

Without thought to give,
Where we live to inhabit is God's creation.
To ignore and take for granted.
Like many who have been spoiled do.
Or remain completely ignorant.
As a preference to choose.
With a doing to dismiss blessings given.
To not understand or comprehend,
If God so wishes to assist...
In destroying ourselves allowed to permit?
God can do this much quicker.

With a caring less,
Who or whom...
Has chosen to remove,
Understanding with consciousness...
And comprehension.
To keep themselves distanced.
Would make no difference to God.
Or what it is God chooses to do.
Today. Tomorrow. Or...if ever!
