I talked to some young men in bible study, yesterday
and they don’t believe in the power of God, today.
It’s like God used up all His energy,
throwing a fireball down from heaven
and now, He rests, on His couch
and lets the devil run free,
tormenting lost souls.
have my doubts…
but unlike most sceptics
I am searching
for that kind of power.
The world doesn’t seem quite real
Many inventions and medicines
We accept what we are told, but we don’t know how it works.
If you dig deep enough,
you start to find inconsistencies.
Most spiritual searchers are lazy
because they have given up.
God is a pill they swallow to feel Good
like morphine, that puts them under the sheets,
so they don’t have to be afraid of the dark.
Spirituality is about being Satisfied,
but too often, gurus lament their failure
and cling to what’s invisible.
Power and the Present and People
and the ladders we choose to climb, or don’t.
If you can’t get up the ladder,
you may be tempted to sit on the ground and meditate,
but it’s unlikely you will reach God.
The same is true, for the towers we build
They go up high, but God is distant from our striving.
a prophet who believes in his own power
and his words
don’t make the mountains move.
His faith, is worthless
but he tries again
because something inside him
needs to believe.
