Treasure Island

Love Is God


In a rage and fury
For that was folly
Unbelief done ignorantly
Rampaged I
With a heart overtaken
By bearish bitterness
And all in vain
Tried I to smother you
With my stony heavy heart
And all in vain
Tried I to tear you
Apart with my tacky teeth
And all in vain
Tried I to debase you
With my murky mouth
And all in vain
Tried I to strangulate you
With my hasty hands
And all in vain
Tried I to trample upon you
With my aspic fumbling feet

But now I know that
All power rests in your vault
For all waters of creation
All your good handiwork
Cannot quench their maker
A conquering conflagration
And no tar-bearing brush can
Paint you black
And no odour-oozing mouth that
Churns from a bad belly can
Smear you
And no horrendous
Hand can asphyxiate you
And no faltering foot can
Subdue you

And now I know full well
That in the bosom
That love lives there also does
God reside cos one and the same
Both are like husband and wife
In a holy matrimony for love
Is the God that lives
In the heart of man which is
Daily sought for by the unlearned
Just go find love
And you have found God.

    lovely and resembles to the man who has the bad and good side-by side in him, we get angry and violent but we have also a soft lovely side that we should make stronger.

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
