the best thing about living in the earth is knowing

you'll never get anything right

and as best as you can do you will still be sent

into some pit for your punishment

(yes even if it's a tiny little misstep)

this God does not play nor does God laugh or forgive

but knowing that is better than clinging to delusions

in the name of your idea of God

that one day everything will be alright and the ache

will reach its end (it will end when everything else in creation

finally reaches its conclusion) and you will finally see

for yourself the reality of living by your own lights

you cannot control your destiny because all you can do is

make your own move then relax knowing God will have the last word
