My Journey to God

The God Within

Deep within the heart of us, a part of God does dwell,
A spirit part that has no sense like sight or taste or smell.
It is a part of something vast—too vast to know the whole.
It’s in the deepest part of us and holds the human soul.
It’s also in the trees and skies and deep within the seas,
And in the stars and moon at night, in suns and galaxies.
It has no need to dominate, no need for power, no greed,
But planted deep within our hearts, it is a mighty seed
That grows and flowers and bears good fruit long after we are gone,
For when our earthly bodies die, the God within goes on.
