religion and its practices are beautiful

but it’s just not for me

i believe in a God 

so vast,

so pure,

so mysterious

i can’t imagine committing to just one practice

when this great deity cannot possibly reveal Himself

through only one idea of a man-made creed

there are thousands of versions of prayers and people calling out His name

for help,

for mercy,

& for salvation

in the dead of night,

in moments of waking,

& in isolated desolation 

i believe in a God 

so kind,

so forgiving 

that He accepts us for whatever we believe in

for whatever amount of faith

our difficult little lives have led us to cling on to

for all our regrets & hopes & desperation
