faces

August 29, 2006

God does
not need
a face

We do
not need
a face

But there may
always
be

faces
to fill

    “faces to fill” … wondering what that last line means. Care to explain? Or is that a lame thing to ask a poet?

    there may always be
    a human existence
    through which spirits pass

    there may always be
    the suffering face of humanity
    in need of love

    there may always be
    laughter and song
    to give brave comfort

    That is beautiful and uplifting – a slight contrast to your post, which seems a bit sad and weighed down by all those faces to fill. Sometimes I feel I’m more useful or have more purpose when I can fill someone’s need for love…perhaps *I* need a few faces to fill…

    Thank you for the genuine comments. After I wrote the above response to twitches I too thought it to be more dynamic than the actual post. Thank you for pointing out the issue of weightedness. It helped me to see it in a better light. I think I will post the response poem also. But what to call it?

    Regarding your thoughts about purpose, I agree. I believe that is why we are here – to help each other and complete one another through connectedness: no soul left behind…
