The Size of Gods – Written Thursday 4th January 2001 (Aged 25)

The Size of Gods

the size of gods
is not known to me
by their being
i am deeply enthralled
but i do not see them
are they big or are they small?

the size of gods
it is not the size of religion
it is not about length of book
it is down to belief

the size of gods
it becomes confused
when you are lacking self belief
you can tell them,
but belief is hard to teach

the size of gods
i am putty in their hands
and a late night visitor
to their alien land
the size of gods
place it in my willing hands

James Garratt – Thursday 4th January 2001
