That's Not God

"God is love" I've heard it said, And to better understand What they meant I tried to see the ways in which People have claimed to love each other. They said to me, "Do you see? do you see?" And I whispered to myself, "That's not God." "That's some dead and rotting tree Turning to golden dust Before washing out to sea." "That's some brief and momentary spark Rising up out of the ashes And up into oblivion." You, vast and wasted world, are a liar.
