The Unknown God - Poem by Adisa Oludare Enitan

To the god I don't know
why do you save me now and even then
when I don't even know you
creator of love and hatred
why do you fight my battles valiantly
even though I beg to let me fight alone

To the god I don't know
why do you hold on to me
even though I pray to let me go
set me free I ask of thee
that I might explore the world before me
I will return when I find in you a place

To the god I don't know
why do you save me from loneliness
even when I don't want to be with you
why do you let me have a thirst
of your gold spot
for now I am beguiled by your glory
your amazing grace has captured my heart

To the god I don't know
command your angels now therefor
that they raise hallelujah to the ear full
for today I make a choice to serve
to be yours alone
for your wisdom is profitable to direct

To the god I don't know
but have now come to trust
let me worship in your holy terbanacle
for your touch is like a mother's embrace
soothing and pleasing
loose but yet fastened
a home away from the known
I have found in its enclosure

To the god I don't know
but now I have
search me within and make me whole
for I have at least put my trust in you
I have found my hope and faith
and just as you let me be known
show forth your grace in irridescent window
far above human let me unfold
