The Day They Took God Away

Ian Birthday, drawings, me after ballet 097

The day they took God away

I saw him, hands tied

gagged

surrounded

Where will my precious ones go to hear him

while he lies behind

prison walls

Then I realized

God could not be crushed

removed

surrendered

Some who had his words

Used them in love and hate

acceptance and rejection

unity and division

all in the name of being the ones who were right

the ones who would take the literal from the

God who speaks in story and symbol

I knocked on the door of the church

and as there were only unrepentant sinners

who could never possibly get it all right

we issued a decree against each other

and everyone went home

But even then

Even when we thought we had dispelled Him  in our hopelessness

God was everywhere
