“I do know that the god you can say / Is not the real God.”

Dark Brain

I want to know who God is.

I do know that the god you can say
Is not the real God.
But I don’t want to know
Who God is not

I want to know who God is.

If I knew, I would tell you.
Not because I think you don’t know
But just because I think that is
The best gift one human can give
To another one.

I don’t know why I want to give you
The best gift.  I just know I do.

But I can’t.  Because I don’t have it.
Shouldn’t my wanting to count for something?

To hell with you.

I want to know who God is.
