'Holy Word'

His words lay there for us to hear;
But as Flesh we are, the truth we cannot bear.
Also as homo sapiens we are; we've reviewed our retrospect perspective of his words;
Defilling His very words,
and taking up the swords.

Enquiring solitude in my solemn moments, from multitudes;
How futile my venture turns out to! Because they also are destitutes.
Also as deprived of that comfort I seek, are they poor;
so proud to admit, so the fall.

In our enthusiasm to procure answers; we've forgotten to ask Him!
For every one that asketh, receiveth;
and he that seeketh findeth.

When cataclysmic experiences finally occur;
we lament at His name and recur.
We quote from His books and His songs.
Now humble we are, asking him to recall.

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
