just what if…
See I know that your god is that bearded old man
and in your comic book bible he’s white
and comes from your land,
but, it also says he’s everywhere and all things,
and has indomitable plans.
So I think that means a “what if...”
What if god is that child in your class
whom you teach, but you lie?
What if god is that uncle who’s leaving you a fortune
and you wish he would die?
What if god was your mother
whom you cursed out n church?
What if god was that girlfriend
whom you left at dinner in the lurch?
I’m not naiive enough to say it matters if
god is the animal you killed for meat
but if you want more serious issues then
What if god is the wife you control with terror
What if god is the wife you know you beat?
It’s easy to say he’s the homeless guy you leave in the street
but isn’t god supposed to be more than …
someone you leave as quickly as you meet?
I thought faith in him was supposed to be a part of your daily life
so god should be as important as your family,
Or perhaps you should treat them as important as he
because if he’s everywhere
you don’t know whom he could be.
