Adieu to April

Today brings to an end the April Poem a Day Challenge.  This was my second year of participation and I have greatly enjoyed it!
Since I have been writing a Poem a Day for over one year, writing a poem a day was not that big of a challenge to me anymore,
therefore, I chose to challenge myself further this month by not only writing a poem a day, but to also write a different form of poem each day,
plus I also chose to create some form of artwork daily for each poem. 
It was a challenge–but one I really enjoyed!!
Many thanks to NaPoWriMo 2014 and WD 2014 PAD Challenge for their daily prompts which often inspired me!

NaPoWriMo 2013, #30–Free Will

Why don’t they listen?
Why can’t they see?
Time and time again I tell them,
Why don’t they believe me?

I tell them the truth,
Things for their own good.
Yet, they ignore what I say
Or treat it as a falsehood.

I love them so much,
It really hurts me to see,
Them reject the wisdom of my way,
And receive a life of misery.

–God
