What gift will you give the world today?

(This is in response to the Questions and Reflections for December 24, 2007)

I offer the world a gift of Trinity — image, music, and poetry.

Music:
My rendition of the classic tune, Sleepwalk, with a holiday twist.


Poetry:

Kings of Wishful Thinking

we say that God is Omniscient, but this would make Him cruel,
for what’s the point of testing us, when He knows the fate of fools,

we say that God is Omnipotent, but this would make us wonder,
for why does He need His angels, to battle demons from evil yonder,

we say that God is the Creator, but this would contradict our theory,
for if the Kosmos is really infinite, there’s no way to create Infinity,

we say that God has a Plan, but this belittles His intention,
for how can He envision a goal, when He’s basking in pure Perfection,

we say that God is Just, but this would make Him blind,
for Justice favors no one, nature, wild, or humankind,

we say that God is our Salvation, but this would make Him a bully,
for if He is Everything, then He is also our Enemy,

we say that God is Love, but this would limit His company,
for how can He be present, when wars engulf humanity,

we say that God is Omnipresent, but this would make Him Us,
for if He is Everywhere, He’d be also in our Hearts,

we say that God should be a He, we say that God should be a She,
we say that God is Neither, whatever Neither meant to be,

we say that God is this, we say that God is that,
but we actually know nothing,
we keep the paradox behind our heads,
and live as Kings of Wishful Thinking.
