John Perez: Extra Credit Poem


Lost between the words of a sacred text,

Believing only this book knows what to do next.

Looking for answers up in the sky,

praying before day, praying before night.

War between nations who don’t seem to understand,

we all must be the work of God’s hand.

Sent to this Earth to learn and to love,

only then may our souls rest with God above.

The Word of God comes in so many forms,

and the Word of God is the reason we’re born.

Arabic, Latin, and Sanskrit interpretations,

we are all sons and daughters, lost in translations.
