If God Invited You to a Party

If God
Invited you to a party
And said,

“Everyone
In the ballroom tonight
Will be my special
Guest,”

How would you then treat them
When you
Arrived?

Indeed, indeed!

And Hafiz knows
There is no one in this world

Who
Is not upon
His Jewelled Dance
Floor.

– A poem by Hafiz

    If God invited me to a party I would ask him why the fuck he made cancer and all the other vicious diseases floating around. I would ask him why he creates deformed babies who die within a few days, I would ask him why with all the pain in the world he continues to look away.
