Anthony Di'anno (Yorkshire)
Can I not cause disaster,
or joyfull birth at my whim?
Am I not Our God within?
Can I not cut down the stoutest tree,
and nurture the most vulnerable seed,
For the God I need?
Stands for the weakest man,
regardless of belief or colour of skin,
It being the most Human thing.
Such a compassionate God could do.
Our God within You.
Poet's Notes about The Poem
I am trying to say that we all have a common urge to care for and nurture the truth. We all carry a version of our God within us. When we take away violence and hate, we are all the same whilst remaining our own unique expression of unconditional love.
