Why do I still need you?

How unfair to give one blow after the other
to people who so believe in you.
You are skewed in your mercies and virtues
You are an unfair, unrepentant God.
Why do I still need you?

Unfair unrepentant god. . . .
Very thoughtful.
In all, a very painfull thought.

faith is spontaneous and unstoppable,
love is willful, yet irreversible sometimes,
belief is still a matter for thought,

because, how much do we believe?..

I've seen how His work happens in mysterious ways. So I might beg to differ with the questions.

But the answer to the very first question is probably: for hope.
