by Stephen Paul Wren
God lets Hell exist because He loves us. He is tolerant. He wants to bring us together, prompting selfless deeds or care. The door on the latch invites us to change.. like parents watching their offspring’s mistakes. When our wrong partners scratch. It reminds us. Hell is for our sakes. The Lord of the flies sells our lives for fun. The Lord of the flies is no match for God. Evil threats that cling to the wild sea waves are enough. We surf. We adhere to light.
Dr Stephen Paul Wren was educated at Cambridge and worked as an industrial chemist before transitioning back into academia at Oxford. He joined Kingston University in September 2018 where he works as a Senior lecturer. Stephen’s poetry can be read here.
