Does God Sleep?

Does God Sleep?

Because I don't.

I toss and turn

I stew and mull

I fixate and ruminate


Does God sleep?

Because I don't

I can't

Its because of the cold

you see

Its cold in my city tonight

There are 90 people in my city tonight

who are without homes trying to sleep on cardboard

on my city streets tonight


Does God sleep?

Because I don't

I can't

Its the overdoses

you see

People just keep dying on me

no matter what we keep trying

they are all just dropping

their hearts slowing then stopping


Does God sleep?

Because I don't.

I can't.

Its my kids

you see

I'm afraid they're going to grow up

afraid

ashamed

with low self esteem

have you seen snapchat?

or the stats?

about depression and technology

everyone is so frigg'n lonely

suicides are on the rise


Does God sleep?

Because I don't.

I can't.

Its the graves you see

Around the school yards

no school should have graveyards


Does God sleep?

Because I don't

I can't

Its because of the warmth

you see

The earth is warming now

there are floods and mud slides killing people now

the skies are filled with smoke all summer now


Does God sleep?

Because I don't
