God Is All

We knew the answer before primordial seas parted,
Before life was breathed into handfuls of dust.
Sentient, yet stupid; inquisitive, yet forgetful.
Don’t doubt the question–it is valuable, as questions go.
Question your definition of “answer.” It is merely a response,
Not a truth, not a falsehood–merely a response.
Silence says as much as yes or no; another question
Can serve as the link between the unknown and understanding.
Stare into the sun and you’ll be blinded by its secrets.
“God is all,” light says through the visible spectrum,
“Except the limitations you mistakenly place upon it.”
