Your Surroundings Don’t Matter


God is with me everywhere
So then why do I seek seclusion?
I would be safer among the people
If my heart is broken, I shall still
Know Divinity, if the people
Disrespect me, who am I to fault?
God is in everything, in market-demon
And false Politician, in ruthless Corporations
God is with me in everything I see
She is not distracted by a multitude of things
Like attachments, preferences, routines
I seek her out in human beings
Hoping she will show me glimmers of truth
Leave me messages of delight, carelessly
In short split-second smiles and in
The wisdom of strangers, that is why
I love God in the people, miracles in vulnerability.
