What if I Don’t?

Believe in God? Then you’re like lots
of us when we came into the rooms.
It says “God as you understand him.”
But you could say, “God as I don’t
understand him. Or her.” 
What’s comfortable for you? Nature?
The universe? A thousand-year-old tree?
You don’t have to take anybody’s god,
not your parents’, the preacher’s, mine.
Some people even start by using the group,
the peace, the recovery, the power here.
Heck, you can use the chair you’re sitting on —
it’s more formidable than you, it’s holding you.
Bottom line, find something more powerful
than you and latch on. Just believe there’s
some “god” and you’re not it.
