God is Not a Murder:

On the other side of growing up
I didn’t realize until I started
having meditative- contemplative
meetings with my mind
There I was getting to be 40 more real- 35
on the side stuck this little green-gullible girl
a rebel,
afro-mellow, drama-free
non-double jointed walker.
Believing humans made God out-to-be a murder
but I knew God would never kill
it wasn’t in his nature
to subject the thing God loves the most
with punishment and cruelty
Let’s clear God’s name
let’s stand presently accountable
for things heinous, unspeakable and inhumane,
the God I know, would never “cast the first stone”
and so it would seem it may take me the next 40 years
to understand God and 40 more to understand why we
did nothing.
Then I realized man…

Man has always wanted to be God.
Swivel side to side, sit on top of golden glass pretending to
make the sunrise, cause the moon to descend, make rainfall and feed every green bird and tree.
but God in a gentle laugh, holds us tightly in one hand and galaxies in the other, knowing
how it all ends, and how it all began.~kindness krissy

  2. WOW!

    When I started reading this, I was sipping coffee and taking a bite of a blueberry muffin.

    I realized I couldn’t do anything else but READ THIS NOW, so I pushed aside my plate. Put down my cup.

    This isn’t just one of your greatest, Krissy. It’s a divinely-inspired scroll of wisdom.


  3. This is amazing and wonderful. Not to speak of true. One question — are you using”man” here as humanity or as “male human being.” Well, it can be read in certain circumstances either way … just wondering …
