GOD SAID, I MADE A MAN

By Jose Garcia Villa

God, said, I made a man

Out of clay-----

But so bright he, he spun

Himself to brightest Day

------

Till he was all shining gold

And oh,

He was handsome to behold!

But in his hands held he a bow

------

Aimed at me who created

Him. And I said

Wouldst murder me

Who am thy Fountained!

------

Then spoke he the man of gold:

I will not

Murder thee! I do but

Measure thee. Hold

------

Thy peace. And this I did

But I was curious

Of this so regal head

Give thy name! Sir! Genius

In Biblical beliefs, we are made by God with his own image. God is so powerful and genius to have that kind of idea. He made us to be a care taker of his creatures, but what we have done is to destroy it. Time will come that man would realize all the mistakes that we have done to our God, when that time comes we must always remember that we should be thankful for everything and ask for forgiveness for all our mistakes

To me it's message is to praise and thank GOD for making us ... it is also about the perfect human like us because we have eyes or all the senses and of even we have a disorder GOD gave us many talents to share and to use for good reasons :)

God said, "I made a man out of clay-

God (in third person point of view) begins speaking here directly to someone or something (not explained yet) and he simply speaks a general "fact" that he created mankind out of clay, perhaps an ode to Greek myth and/or perhaps referring to a common conception of mankind being "molded" by a heigher deity

But so bright he, he spun Himself to brightest Day

Till he was all shining gold, and oh, He was handsome to behold!

these lines continue with the molding imagery as its subject, but relay its meaning to a simple compliment to our mankind/his creation..we were able to be ordinary beings made from clay to wonderful ("handsome") creatures

But in his hands held he a bow Aimed at me who created him.

God's creation is turning hostile towards him (i.e. Frankenstein and his monster)

And I said, "Wouldst murder me Who am thy Fountainhead!"

God (in first person now) is questioning why his creation would turn against him, him being a fountainhead (mankind's source-see source note below)

Then spoke he the man of gold: "I will not Murder thee! I do but measure thee. Hold thy peace.'

mankinds rebuttal to a confused God, basically states mankind will not act against God, but God will be under a watchful eye (measure thee) and demands God to be peaceful with his new creation

And this I did.

God agrees to mankind's terms in first person but is curious who this "regal head" (kingly like leader) is in front of him because it is clearly not his original creation and he demands an answer from mankind ('Give thy name!')

'Sir! Genius.' mankind, God's creation, responds that this "regal head" is actually "genius" which could be viewed as the personification of Genius as an evolved form of human being wary of God's power
