Thoughts on God

Standard

Tonight I spent my “creative juices” writing something for my friend Jermaine (www.jermainelane.com).  So, I’m offering you up one of my paintings and an old poem.  Enjoy!

Little White Box

do you have
a little white box
etched with gold
beautiful white box
lined with scarlet velvet
a little white box
to put your God in?

do you take Him out
when you need a band-aid
to heal your broken heart
when you want a magician
to make-believe a happy ending
when the wound is healed and story sounds pretty
do you put Him back again?

do you have
a little white God
who fits into your box
beautiful white God
with invisible band-aids and magic cures
a little white God
who fits inside your box?
