Wings will always embrace you

A chapter in the book A collection


by Jean Hornby

The man whispered
" God speak to me "
Then a bird sang
But the man did not hear

So the man yelled
"God speak to me ! "
Then the thunder and lightning
Rolled across the sky
But the man did not listen

Ignoring the thunder
The man stood in the rain
And continued to yell
"God why don't you answer me?"
Then the rain stopped
And upon him shone the sun
But the man looked down in despair

The man knelt down full of negative thoughts
And feeling alone sobbed
"God where are you ? "
Then a passing child threw arms around him
And kissed him
But the man shouted " not now "
And pushed the child away

The man stood up to do his daily chores,
And full of self pity
He shouted loudly
"God where are you ! "
Just then his horses neighed to him
And his dog wagged its tail with love
But the man looked through them

Confused and feeling alone
The man continued his sorrow unto the night
" Why don't you care God ? " He whispered
His dog then placed its head upon his knee

Feeling totally frustrated
The man stood up and pushing the dog away
Looked up to the sky and shouted
"God why don't you ever listen ! "
Then church bells rang

The man looked around and said
"God let me see you "
Then a star shone brightly
But the man did not see

The man shouted
"God show me a miracle "
Then a life was born
But the man did not notice

So the man cried out in despair
" touch me God , and let me know you are here "
Where upon, God reached down and touched the man
But the man just brushed the butterfly away and walked on

The man cried " Please God ! I need your help"
Then a loving email arrived from the woman of his dreams
And an email arrived to tell him he had got his dream job
But the man did not bother to look
He just deleted them and continued to cry .
