I sit,
I stare,
And nothing's there.
I wait for God to find me.

I sleep,
I snore,
Try to ignore
The silence that surrounds me.

I dream,
I ache,
While I'm awake
For that which is beyond me.

I think,
I know,
The end's hollow,
With only death to greet me.

I pray
I'm wrong,
That all along
My God resides within me.

"I must create my own system, or be enslaved by another man's"-William Blake

this was a great peice. It really spoke to me esp the cynical side that ruled over most of my time last year.

I just loved this one. It has perfect flow, and I like the rhymes as well. Just really stands out to me, I don't even know why.

I really like the poem, complex i its own simplicity. But I must say god doesn't really exist anywhere else than in our own minds so yes god does live within us, as an idea :)

thanks for the input
Thanks everyone for comments here and on my "Grace" poem. Mucho appreciated. As for specifics, I believe when we can't find God "out there" we turn inward. But God is not in the mind, if it were then religion (or lack of) would be enough. God is a relationship. Either you choose love, or you don't. Period.
