Reaching God

I want to reach God
Could I reach with pray
Could I reach with people
Or will I only grasp an empty void

I want to reach God
Should I hang on my hope
Should I hang on my work
Or will I put my soul into sacrifice

I want to reach God
It seems the words become ashes
It seems the world becomes dust
And I turn to another hypocrite man

I want to reach God
Maybe I'll never really catch even a feather of wing
Maybe I'll never really get the meaning
But my heart always looking for something more

I want to reach God
My body maybe sated by the joy of earth
My mind maybe conquered by the pleasure of power
But inside nothing else could fill this hunger

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
