Jesus and the Father
I spoke about God as if I really knew,
as if I really knew the One,
the One who is,
who is unknowable.
Oh sure, I can speak of my experiences of God,
and those experiences tell me that
God understands my limitations,
that when I attempt to speak to God,
that when I attempt to hear God,
God was already speaking,
but it’s like saying that my affinity for chocolate
correlates with how well I sing,
Have mercy, have mercy oh Beloved,
unknowable, yet the object of my desire.
I am created to seek you,
yet only experience glimpses,
yet only experience glimpses
that lead deeper into the Mystery.
