Goodbye Lord

Its been a hard road

You helped me build.

Im grateful.

You got me through

Some dark times.

I thought you a light,

A torch in the darkness,

But really

It was my magic.

My fire.

My light.


They told me you were watching

As though it was a comfort.

And I tried

To feel helped


I tried so hard

To give you the love

I was told you created

If she is omnibenevolent, omniscient and omnipotent;

Then I want to meet her creator’s creator’s creator,

After all, lest we forget, the belief in creationism is infinite……


Curator of secrets. A fraud.

Plagiariser of Buddha. A dictator.

A hypocritical book to dissect,

A lot of information to correct.


Now let’s not try to kid ourselves and pretend to belie...

A poem for Ashraf Fayadh

Saudi courts, your rule of fear is finished
- the sentence on this poet negates your faith.

Taking what you will from whatever you agree

But blind faith is foolish, it is so unreal

god said “there’s a bone in my soup”

and spat it out

... and where is your God?


A tumour on the brain
steals a life, unformed and pure,
a child,
so please don't tell me there is a God
for I would ask you and where is your God
when the innocent are tortured and slain
in his unholy and despicable name?
I would ask you again and again and again
where is your God,
that is neither holy nor loving
but empty, remorseless and vain.
There goes your God

There is no god

There is no god,

But One,

One Sea,

One Rock,

One Land,

One Tree

One Sun,

There is no god

But we
