God Above, God Within

Why does God not show his face,
But hide away and make us chase
Him to and fro? I’d like to know –
Why does he make us question so?

It isn’t fair He gets to be
The King of all Eternity –
Staying hidden, standing by,
Watching silent as we cry,

Begging him “Why, oh why?”
He watches on as children die.
It makes no sense that God would be
So far away from you and me.

Perhaps he isn’t after all –
Perhaps he answers when we call,
Or maybe only when we pray
A certain prayer a certain way.

Perhaps the answers lie within –
Perhaps I’m God or We are Him,
And all it takes is showing Love
Instead of blaming God above.
