#133 of 365 – “maybe”



maybe I’ll practice Voodoo

to find out where I belong


maybe I’ll fall back into the vices

and idol worship of Babylon


maybe Jesus will come and save my soul

and take me to the river


maybe I’ll follow the Buddha

until I’m enlightened and delivered


maybe Yahweh will show me

the secrets to life


maybe Allah will intervene

and lift me up from my strife


maybe I’ll read some leaves of tea

and divine a new way of being


maybe a Wiccan spell will give me

a new way of seeing


maybe a sweat lodge will draw

me deep into the heart of community


and maybe the Brahman will find

inside of me some final unity


but most likely, the answers I seek

are somewhere deep inside of me

    Or maybe you won’t waste your time with any of these and will just keep writing and finding yourself in your poetry! Ah hah! Though clever, charming, and catchy, the verses above aren’t where you’ll find the answers you seek. We both know that.
