If You Asked, I would speak to you of God

If you asked, I would speak to you of God pray tell – would you really listen or would your mind be turning pages in reply my inquiry rebuffed by righteous sigh. Or would a probing thought from out the gate cause you to summon those who keep the book lest I test your faith with inquiries unknown and the cover of your piety unhook. And yet a fear resides within my soul an aching to be freed of doubts parole to grasp the essence of the truths I’ve known to walk upon a path not found – but shown. Call me what you will – but not a fraud for if you asked - I would speak to you of God. John G. Lawless ©1/2/2022
