I think you misunderstood me.
I'm sorry if my poetry led you astray.
When I speak in parables and metaphors,
it's only for the fact that it's hard to talk about these kinds of things.
Don't take me literally. Literally.

Oh, the perils of language.
How can we understand if it's the only way we know how to communicate reality?
We get lost in the symbols, but it isn't that simple.
Don't stare at my finger when I point at what's in front of me.

Spirit, who can tell me what it is?
Is it a ghost, or a host, somewhere out there in the clouds or in the ether? I think it's neither.
When I think of God, I think of that which cannot be explained, or named, or given a face or a brain.
It simply exists, like the life force within us and everything.
Experiencing what is to be. What it is to be.


Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to knock the written or spoken word. But it is important we watch what we put in a box, according to structured verbiage. 'Cause sometimes, often times, words divide, when they have a deeper meaning than they seem to on the surface
