If You Could Ask God Anything What Would You Ask Him

["(8)For he said, Surely they are my people,children that will not lie; so he was their Saviour.
(9)In all their affliction he was afflicted and the angel of his presence saved them:in his love and in his pity he redeemed them: and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.
(10)But they rebelled, and vexed his holy Spirit: therefore he was turned to be their enemy, and he fought against them.
(11)Then he remembered the days of old...

Isaiah 63:8-11, The Holy Bible (King James Version)]

maybe we are casualties- 
but we are still Your casualties
maybe we got on the wrong train

but it still looked the same.
then the doors snapped shut; the train moved on.
someone rerouted us.

someone said I'm going there.
but they weren't. track switchers.
maybe we got left in the dirt.

It was still Your dirt.
were we Your fool's gold shining
after all Your work?

maybe half we say we don't even mean.
maybe half we are you can't redeem.
Then we're Your halves my Lord

and maybe we make you laugh
balancing the world on half a head.
when we don't make You cry

oh God tells the truth but His children lie
then are we Your Lies?
it cannot be.

Then we're your casualties
and it's Your war
we're the least, factored out

but it's Your factor.
not Your factory though.
oh, I don't know.

we love you when we think of it.
and when we don't
are we Your Tears?
