First encounter

Work Text:

This poem describes the first encounter between Mr. Smith and God.

:::

The water, so deep.
Dark and wide under the moon.
So tempting to jump,
finally to end the life.
Welcome peace and silence.

The water, so cold.
He can't move; he can't cry; he
can't breathe anymore.
Pain and darkness, he doesn't care;
so soon it will be over.

A booming, angry voice,
two strong hands, unrelenting.
No chance to escape.
Fetched back to life brutally,
to loneliness and sorrow.

„You won't die today.
You can't escape from your fate.
Born to save the world,
born to be God's messenger.
The world is lost without you.“
