THE SADNESS OF A SECULAR WORLD

There was a time
when men built
God great houses
of stone and glass.
with Gothic towers
reaching to scratch
Heaven's belly.

In the great hall,
beneath the bold
flying buttresses,
people felt tiny--
yet when they
cast their eyes
upward, they
thought: This is
where He must be.
And sometimes,
just sometimes,
some of them
would feel a 
twinge, even
a slight shaking,
a divine wisp.

Now we build
huge malls with
myriad shops
offering endless
promises--all lies.
We hack humanity
down to the lowest
common denominator,
and mock those who
seek to awaken to
their immortality.

Today we can kill
in the millions--
tomorrow, billions.
All that creation 
has brought us to,
over such a long time,
is for naught. Will God
one day grow tired
and finally say,
'ENOUGH!'

    Len, a very thoughtful well written piece. Not a popular genre of poetry, so I applaud you. Our best wishes to you. G.

    Powerful pen len! Very sad isn't it how all have changed like you state here in your poem men building and worshiping idols and have forgotten God by now most at least had. Yes, according to the book of Revelations God will have his day and say to man Enough! I really enjoyed your piece my dear friend. Have a lovely evening! :) Love and hugs! xxx D. ^O^
