there is one god
that god is me
i am my own god
i am god to me

there is one god
that god is you
you are your own god
you are god to you

through many live
we guide ourselves

    i don't believe anybody or anything should be worshiped. what ever your belief structure is. no god would want to be and anyone who says otherwise tongues be split willingly or not.

    I believe that God rests within each of our souls, John. And I like the way you take responsibility for your own destiny, even though I place my own future in God's hands. Interesting poem. Love, carolyn

    When you worship yourself, it is devil worship. Do not give into the temptation to selfishness. The world is already near self-destruction from selfishness. I say be like Lord Jesus, sacrifice yourself for others, or be like Lord Buddha sacrifice yourself to teach others enlightenment. But we are all a piece of god, and words are easily misunderstood.
