Angry at God
And much of what
He was sending my way
I begun questioning him
The way I was taught never to

Thou shalt be punished!
An old voice said


What’s the worst
That could happen
I asked

Thou shalt burn in hell
Said it

The worst,
I said again
Tell me worse


Another voice said
He could give you
About a million lives to live


And that alone
Made  me falter
In my angry questioning
