every single part of life

what if every life
was part of a life lived
not just re-encarnation
but something from every life gived

what if we were all Jews
priest of God something God used
once enslaved and often abused
what if one of our souls
were once a Jew

what if we were a child abused
with no chance of living
and painfully misused
to leave this earth
without hope and confused
what if this soul 
was a soul God used

what if we were slaves
with a nation to build
plantations and pyramides
or else be killed
what if our lot was part of this plot
and our soul given 
to the life of locks

what if our soul was given to war
not to die but relive the horror
not only to kill but have friends killed
to return home disfigured dishonored
and still
to love your country 
and your country that love kill
and live with the regret that
your lifes blood was not spilled

what if your life was of a man misused
or even that of a wife abused
with one individual
the cause of your hell
year after year under their spell
no one to hear the screams you yelled
until that day you finally fell

what if you spent your life searching for God. 
but you can't see him and to you it's odd.
everyone seems to have a piece of this dream
but to you no shread of evidence was ever seen
hopes die as loved ones go
dispared of life that has no soul
to what purpose was this wicked goal
to give you life without a soul

what if you have a destiny
purposed by God
and what if death be our end
as God gives the nod
then destiny arrives as death resurected
destroying the lies and misdirected
supplying the hope and condeming the greed
waste is our possesion 
when we have more than we need
this is the vision that destiny see's
the happiness of heaven 
and not earthly greed

what if every life addressed a cause
a time for action no time for pause
what if we knew of every kind of pain
what could we better if we had this gain
an end to all suffering that has a name
an end to all the guilty that play
evil games

    Such noble utterances and aspirations, doubts and yearnings--your talent is difficult to assail. A marvelous contribution here.

    "What if"? Man's eternal questions. Please let me know when you have the answers. Allan

    Hey, bruv, another of yours off to faves. I had a hard time deciding my favorite part between "slavery" and our "search for God" and in the end settled for both. This is poetry at its finest, my friend. Licia :-)
