Where is God in War

by whoneedsaname

He is the one behind the bullets Who guides them to their mark

He is the one the murdered pray to Huddled in the dark

He is the reason men stand tall In faith that He is with them

He is the reason they live in Hell Believing in His Heaven

He is the one for whom all blood is shed This benevolent one who thrives off death

He is the one to whom last words are cried One last prayer as a final breath

He is the one who lets bombs fall Who sees them land exact and true

He is the one who drives men's hearts, And hear me now, He drives you, too.

He is justification And redemption And a will to carry on inside men's hearts.

Whether or not He's there at all He always plays a part.

I do not want to disabuse you of any belief in a religious creed. I think religion has a certain amount of benefit by conveniently setting the morals for a society. Those morals may not be observed universally but they are there as standards. As for war and God, I do not see an intersection of values. I have been in war with deeply religious people who prayed fervently while I radioed for close air support and laid down suppressive fire. Guess who got the credit for our survival. I see war as an obdurate obstacle for those advocating the existence for an omnipotent and omniscient deity. You have written a thought provoking and emotionally mature essay/poem. I think you have laid down the foundations for a continued rational approach to life. Great job!!
