"Roar Shack" by Alice Fulton was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on September 6, 2013. The poet reveals in her notes that her poem metaphorically describes her descent into atheism after witnessing a traumatic event. This kind of loss of faith is, sadly, common and all too understandable.
I once heard radio personality Michael Savage (pictured) address this issue. He struggled with it and came to the following conclusion--a conclusion with which I agree: God is omniscient but not omnipotent. That is a sacrilegious doctrine to any faith-based religion. However, the alternative is that an all-knowing, all-seeing God witnesses evil but chooses to do nothing about it, and that is something that I am not willing to accept.
