God Flowers Inside Creatures


81

I am sure, as I live
That there is nothing
So near to me as God
Nothing so intimate to me
As Nature, I am sure

That Love is not a personal force
Not a sexual attraction
A family bond, a friendly trust
But an impulse for all
Of existence, all of the Universe

I must become God then –
And serve all the Love in me
I am sure, as I live
That there is nothing
So near to me as Bliss

Nothing so intimate to me
As serving Life, I am sure
That I can serve strangers, aliens
Criminals, a corrupt world
Since Love is not a personal force

Who am I to judge, that all creatures
Are not deserving of support?
To give, is my religion
To love, is my dogma
To help, is my ritual

That is all I need to know
That is enough to for me
I am sure, as I live
That God is within me
But I alone, do not exist.
