The good news is –
God supplies our every need.
The bad news is –
sometimes, we need deprivation,
heartache, grief ... failure, pain. O lovers!
I don’t know what I am talking about!
But, I keep talking ... because somebody
is putting words into my mouth
and if I can’t trust that somebody
then, who can I trust?
So ... I let it ride – all or nothing –
the spinning wheel and the bouncing ball
and this is my path –
sure of nothing, steeped in the lore,
living off the tantalizing possibilities
and the blessed assurance
the goal has already been won,
in fact, the journey has never begun
and here we are again –
playing God’s game.
O child of God, rejoice –
playing your role in God’s game.
