Poetry On Odyssey: Amen
Start writing a post

Who do you pray to?

Our Mother,

Are they kind?

In her mercy,

Are they cruel?

Smite those who would harm us.

Do they even exist?

Who is your God?

Our Father,

Are they forgiving?

Forgive us,

Are they angry?

And keep us

Where do you find them?

Church

Synagogue

Mosque

Home

Are they in small kindnesses?

"Can you hold the door for me?"

"Of course!"

Big Miracles?

"But he has risen!"

Do they live in the saints?

Saint Anthony of the Lost

Are they in the quiet place inside of you?

The silence is the only place

One that the world cannot touch

that comforts you anymore

Does it exist

Yes.

No.

Maybe.

In a place that only you know?

Not even your demons can find you here

Is your god only yours?

Yes.

No.

Maybe.

Do you find them?

Yes.

No.

Maybe.

Are they something to worship?

Yes.

No.

Maybe.

Or fear?

Yes.

No.

Maybe.

Where do they live?

In a place high above the clouds?

Where only angels tread?

In a place far below the earth?

Where only demons trod?

Do you pray?

Can you pray?

Is your God an idea?

A wish?

A prayer?

That only you can say?

Where is your noun of worship?

A person?

A place?

A thing?

Who do you pray to?

Who is your God?

Are they worthy

Of your love?

Yes.

No.

Maybe.
