Inspiration of the Week 6

Welcome to The poetry Palace and "Inspiration of the week". There are so much talent wthin the blogsphere and this week I have visited a blog that I am sure will inspire the others talented poets. I am Chimnese and it's a pleasure to be with you. This is my first time doing the Inspiration of the week.

Today's Chosen Poem I share with you
is a poem by "Brokenpenwriter"


What if I were God
and you were just a part of me?
 You, the corn on the bottom of my foot
an irritation that hurt when I walked
Would I rub you out with an emery board
or clip you off, and drop you on the floor
then sweep your bits under the rug?
What if I were God
 and you, a breast that disappointed
by being too small, too flat, too thin
Would I slice you open, fill you with gel
and hoist you into a wire-rim
then strut you around - my parceled goods?
What if I were God
 and you, a beggar who walked my street
a living reminder of There-But-For-Fortune
Would I cast my eyes the opposite way
and pretend you didn’t exist
then demand the police move you on?
What if I were God
 and you, a kidnapped slave taken for sex
hidden from laws, devalued as human scum
Would I say it was up to you to fight back
that you should have known better
than to walk alone at night?
 What if I were God
and you were part of me?
 Would I love you?
