God Right, God Wrong
Have you found the God of little things?
Felt divinity around, within
The awe inspiring miracle of life
In the Dream that is dreaming us?
Have you the right God, and I the wrong?
Better, then, for all to have none.
In what God’s name have many killed,
Been killed, tortured and oppressed;
Converted and perverted?
In what God’s name have many loved,
Been healed, made whole;
Redeemed and reconciled?
Some say the way to God
Is the way of peace and renunciation:
Renounce all gods of our own making,
Created in our own vain image,
Along with hatred, greed and fear---
But not the God of little things.
