18. De profundis

Why is the world and times so dark?
The unrighteous sufferings of the righteous
cry unto the relentless silence of a God
who as long as he existed has been doubted
and for only valid reasons,
since he never has lived up to his ideals:
the crooks have always dominated the establishment,
while the poor and innocent
forever have remained in poverty and innocence
without the slightest interference
of any God of righteousness
who rather constantly has proved
a silent God of cruellest indifference
insensible to human sufferings
with no heart but a hard and frozen stone.
So, what can we do but suffer the insufferable
and stand up to bleak reality of godlessness
in a most natural unhuman world of cruelty
and scorn it all.
