In the thick
The nearer you get to God,
the more you take Him for granted.
Ensconced in the body joints,
coating the tongue and retinas,
coursing the veins faith becomes undetectable
as an aura to the non-illumined.
God becomes a necessary routine -
soap to skin, food to belly,
the hours allotted for sleep.
Daily we remember God -
to give Him His due
until one day we are shown
He's due everything, every moment.
Then, life becomes a prayer.
You take it for granted God is there
because it's His life, His due
and where else would God be
but deep in the thick of His own invention?
O child of God, make Him the center
until He becomes the everything.
