If G-d Had Eyes

In memory of the heroes who stared G-d straight in the eye.

If G-d had eyes.
What would He see.
Would He see goodness in blood.
Or darkness like me.

If G-d had lips.
Would He cry with His sons.
If His daughters could see Him.
Would He let His tears come.

If G-d had a head.
Would He hang it in shame.
Would He regret what He’s done.
Or would He call it a game.

If G-d had ears.
I’d give voice to my angst.
Even my silence would scream.
And the Heavens would shake.

If G-d had a face.
I’d do nothing but glare.
If truth spilled from evil.
I’d believe He was there.

If G-d has a heart.
Let it be aching.
If thousands have shook.
Trust His is breaking.
