We search for answers
That don’t exist
To ease fears
That won’t disappear.

We search for God
In buildings,
And Bibles,
But God is not there.

We search for ourselves
In love and work,
In therapy and religion,
But we are not there.

Look within to find both —
We are not separate,
But intertwined,
We circle and bind one another.

Like twists of fate,
And golden braids,
Together God and I
Make this person called Me.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
