The wise man and God
The wise man had grown old and served many; his love for others was great, for himself it was diminished and he had meditated on a hill for ever morning of his life and on a day of despair the Almighty had come upon him; thus follows:
Lord why have I lived for others and alone: they laugh and sing with other and are intimate, they have a normal way that I seem to desire.
They have the impact of a pebble in a pond; the many that live for themselves do not see the order and have a peace, they overwhelm themselves with glories yet they overwhelm others with turmoil.
Those that live for others have an impact of a bolder in a pond changing many things; there are those that do evil unto others and those that do great for all others.
Then god why have you let evil reign in your creation: the pain that many live in, why are you creator of the bad as well as good.
I have not created the evil; I created a child and gave unto him knowledge of good and discernment, what he had done was up to him. If a man was to be hung for evil deeds would I ask his father why he had gave birth your question is illogical and somewhat vain, which I did not intend for my children.
Will I ever have peace; will peace reign on earth and all live as one.
I have given wisdom thru many men and prophets, yet none understand why I must repeat myself.
Now I ask you, are you a wise man for vanity; only to be praised in your deeds or do you honor your mother and father and creator in your actions?
I fear I do not know I fear that I live for myself and I try to overcome that with more good, which that only leads to question if thy actions are to glorify myself worth or those who I owe all things.
You are good my son for you question: to say yes would prove that you are vain or self demoralizing which is only pride, or to say you are not doing those things in self grandeur would be confident to an arrogant degree, your soul and spirit are for me to truly know and when we meet again I shall reveal yourself for what you have been.
And the Almighty left.
