How Do We Know?


eighteen days

eighteen hope-filled days we prayed

each to our disparate god

asking for mercy, an intervention

begging thirteen lives be saved

for eighteen days

And. They. Were!


now might come the question

how do we know whos god heard?

whos god answered our pleas

“Theyre out!” ample validation

for each ones god being The One

wherein lies logical senselessness

for each our god excludes others

any One will not permit any Other


so how DO we know whos god heard us

whos god gave us this blessing

whos god is worthy of our thanks

our praise and adoration


if we dont know how to know

or see beyond our blindness

how can truth be known?


The validity of ones god is proved


by our being given the things we want


by the mesh and fit of our god with reality


Looking at the ripples

doesnt prove a thing,

weve got to dive deep

to see the ripples spring
