WHERE HAS GOD GONE?

I wrote this wistful poem back in May. Sadly, nothing has changed!

The title of my poem, “Where has God gone?” is taken from what was said about the Holocaust. Where was God when six million Jews were murdered? 

The last line but one ‘the flowers we planted’ is a metaphor and is not meant to be about gardening!

Where has God gone?

Up in the skies the swallows are winging

Down in the trees the birds are all singing

Out in the streets not one soul can be seen

They’re all shut indoors watching the screen

Where are the children the people are saying

They’re locked in their homes, no one is playing

Where are the people, where have they gone?

Knock on the door, is there no one at home

Rainbows are chalked where people are walking

Not looking at phones but actually talking

We reach out to speak to friends on the phone

Everyone’s lost, we all feel alone

No one is travelling, no one is flying

All over the world people are dying

The life that we lived where did it go?

Will it return, does anyone know?

Where is the world and the life that we made

Are we going to die alone and afraid?

The people we love, the flowers we planted

Where is the life that we took for granted?
