The Wanderer

A friend asked me today, “Do you love God?”

An unnerving question to me,

as my life of late has not displayed any evidence.

I am a creature who loves running,
and religion is another thing I run from.

But the question was not are you a Christian

Or are you going to church, but do you love God.

I answered her Yes… but this question rebounded

around in my soul for a while.


God is such a misunderstood word;
such a powerful word.

A word that causes mankind to fight, to war,
as well as love.

A word that raises barriers, builds walls,
as mankind tries to contain the uncontainable;
define the indefinable.

Who, what, where, why is God?

And DO I truly love him?


My trail is very spiritual in this life,
yet I am bound in an intensely sensual body.

I try and balance the two ends of the stick.

Sometimes, I walk with joy, with power, and with love:
at other times, I am the wanderer.


Do I truly love God…
yet the definition of that word is not clear within;

muddled by the trek of this life.

I look around me and see this creation’s glory,

and I say, Yes.

But what does this affirmation mean within my soul.

I run along at times, while at other times, I walk.

Sometimes I just sit in the grass beside the brook.

I do know one thing for sure…
I have the soul of the wanderer.
