    Desolate is the land where Eve faltered
    As stated by your holy book
    Outcasted are the ranks of man
    Searching out of spite for what he took

    Doomsday patterns are repeated
    Continuously throughout our lives
    Left unable to comprehend his strength
    Yet still expected to jump right in the hive

    I can't reap or sow a thing
    No matter how hard I try
    How can you put your faith in one
    Who can't even begin to answer why

    Blindly you believe in fairy tales
    Written just as was the Odyssey
    Desperate to lean on something
    You begin to trust what you can't see

    A book is all the proof you need
    It isn't quite that way for me
    Someone elses complex life opinions
    Is all that the bible seems to be

    So I say, "Trust in life after death!"
    But don't throw your faith away
    What god would create hell on earth
    Just to watch you live another painful day?

    If he's present through all the pain
    If he's watching you take him in vein
    If he smells all your losses and gains
    Then why can't he just explain?

    Cryptic Angel,

    In response to the lines that you didn't think fit:

    By saying trust in life after death but don't throw your faith away I meant that you should believe that there is something bigger (not meaning the christian god or any other for that matter) because there most surely is, but you shouldn't put your faith in something that you can't possibly comprehend or make any sense out of. Hope I didn't further confuse you.
    Thanks for the replies,

    another cynically oriented poem..heh..well all i can say is that..
    He can very well explain..just try to ask from inside of ur heart..and there are somethings He does which are incomprehensible for us humans to understand...but ofcourse these things do have a specific aim (beyond our understanding)

    seeing doesnt necessarily fetch a belief or a relief of existence in ur cognizance!!
    I'd like to tell you many more things..and answer ur pm me or im me.

    btw sorry for forgetting that i was supposed to give the feedback of ur poem..but i got too deeply entangled with the questions hidden in ur was certainly a nice one...looking forward for more of ur works :)
