It's chapbook season, here at Words Without Walls! We've been busy with in-class revision, getting reading to submit work to print in the chapbook. The formal reading is only two weeks away.
I thought I'd share a short poem with you all from one of our students in the Thursday men's class, J. Myers. J. has come to class with great work throughout the semester, and he's also shown tremendous progress with his writing. This piece isn't going in the chapbook, but he gave us permission to share it here, with you all. Thanks for reading!
"God Is Real"
So you really think the Sun, moon, and stars came from a big bang.
I wouldn’t buy that for a few dollars and some pocket change.
Maybe you think some alien’s kids are playing some big game,
On this field called a planet with little earthlings.
The body, brain, and heart should at least be some signs,
That all of this couldn’t have just popped up at one point in time.
I rather believe in something and be right,
Than believe in nothing and be wrong.
Cuz if you’re right you have everything to gain,
and if you’re wrong you have nothing to lose, maybe just your soul.
This is no debate don’t be confused it’s out of your control.
But we all have freewill when it comes to our destiny and goals!
Cause life is a gift and death is no surprise,
God is real, God is real, it’s not too late to realize!
