"The Tyger" by William Blake.

In this poem, Blake questions a god that could create something as violent and fierce as a tiger and in the same sweep create something as innocent and vulnerable as a lamb.

I like this poem because of its dystheistic undertone. A lot of authors battled these kinds of thoughts but were too afraid to speak out publicly in fear of religious reprisals. Blake was not one to hold back his views, and I greatly respect him for it.

Enjoy!
