“Is God a Control Freak?” — A Poem by Chima Daniel

“You’ll burn in hell” said the preacher, “if you don’t repent.”
“Repent from what?” I asked.
“From what we call wrong.”

What is wrong with ‘wrong’,
when saints are extreme throngs?
What is wrong with ‘wrong’,
when crusades are enshrined in songs?

The followers are dictators
speaking for their creator;
calling freedom heresy
and gainsay prophesy.

Being right is slavery,
a mundane act of fanatics.
Being wrong is bravery,
a refined act that attracts critics.

Even the Almighty admitted wrong
when he grieved for creating man on the earth.
But man claimed to be strong
when he took the place of the Almighty to control the earth.

Why not share?
