Does He Know What's Goin' On?

MEN DYING AT THE HANDS OF ONE ANOTHER.
A CREATION BEYOND IMAGINATION,
OF FREE WILL AND DESTINATION.
WE STAND AT THE TOP OF THE ANIMAL KINGDOM,
BUT, SLOWLY WE CLIMB DOWN OFF OUR THRONE
TO A LEVEL MORE SUITED TO THE ACTIONS WE TAKE.
SOME CLAIM TO HAVE HEARD HIS VOICE.
THE SUPREME BEING, INTANGIBLE AND UNSEEN,
HE, WITH THE POWER TO DESTROY NATIONS
WITH THE WAVE OF HIS MIGHTY HAND,
TO UNLEASH AN AWESOME FURY AND BE DONE WITH IT ALL.

HOW THEN CAN HE LOVE US?
TO ALLOW THE SUFFERING AND DESPAIR AMONG THE INNOCENT
AND THE WEALTH AND JUBILATION AMONG THE WICKED.
IT IS THE GIFT.
THE MIND THAT GRASPS THE HEAVEN AND EARTH
WITH A PERSPECTIVE OF WHAT IS AND IS NOT.
THE GIFT IS FREE WILL.
THE ABILITY TO SAY FOR ONESELF, "I AM ME,"
NOT UNLIKE ANOTHER, BUT NEVER THE SAME.
THE RIGHTEOUS AND PIOUS FALL FROM THE PINNACLE
AS DO THE EVIL AND FORSAKEN RISE UP FROM THE BOTTOM.
THE PATH OF THE SOUL IS CARRIED THROUGH ITS MORTAL EXISTENCE
BY MERE PHYSICAL STRUCTURE
BUT THE IDEAL LIVES ON FOREVER
