All Father


I think any god

worthy of the title

would be profoundly sad

and disillusioned to learn

that humans still

worshipped him.

He would rather, I think,

see us stand as adults

and face the world

on our own terms,

relying on our own gifts

and armor to thrive.

Only a neurotic god

would demand that we stay

on our knees and sing.

Jim Wise
