A Seven Minute Letter (And Thoughts on God)

November 21, 2011

god is a desert sand
and he is in me.
Leaving only cinders
and trembling hands.
he is in me.
god is an Idea that grows
until I’m not sure if I am
the thinker or the thought.
god is unafraid to look upon
the unknowable
and to pursue the dark places
step by stumble.
And he is in me
pushing me inside out.
The compulsion,
the doubt,
the restless passion —
is in me.

I Am I

March 5, 2009

I am.  Maybe this is how God and I are similar.
He names Himself ‘I Am’
(I reduce it to ‘I’ but I am I)
And he created me in His image
therefore I, too, am. 
It feels good to say it
after so long of trying to disprove it
(or at least disregard it) 
it feels good to accept that I am
and therefore I do.
