The Pretty Little Package

Preaching omnipotence
we put limits on the limitless,
enclosing infinity
within our finite comprehension;

unable to conceptualize
a divinity unbound
we fasten boundless glory
to our human intentions.

A pretty little package –
all the better to sell –
knowing not the power
that exists there within,

but we go on singing
for our hearts feel the truth
of a power and glory
beyond the limits of sin.


Written for Dungeon Prompts, Season 3 Week 1: Concepts of God
