God has things which He calls His –
I have things which I call mine –
But who really owns the soul that was taken from me days ago –
When the sun for me had ceased to shine?
I claim that soul to be mine –
As it had been in life throughout –
But God claims that it is His –
For reasons only He knows about
Help me! Somebody!
I’ve got a problem here!
A big problem –
And I don’t know what to do!
There are several questions
I require answers to
I’ve got claim of Theft against God!
And I don’t know how I’m supposed to win –
Who will be the Judge of God?
And what Courthouse will He be tried in?
Where can I get myself a lawyer?
I have no experience in law –
Or Law –
Here, all the lawyers are fighting for their own souls –
Albeit in a different Court of Law
So pray tell me –
If anyone has answers to my questions –
Of you I implore!
Get it to the room Father in which has grounded me –
Or else tell it to me outside Heaven’s Door
You see –
I don’t want to go to Heaven –
I want to return to my place of birth –
Where my family kills grass on my grave with their tears –
I want to return to their Haven –
Their Haven may be short of Heaven –
But I could never look down from Above –
And watch them mourn whilst I sit with God’s
Facsimiles of my children and my Love
My conscience would never be at ease –
And I would never –
Be able to rest in peace
