Sometimes, I confess,
I look at humans and say
And sometimes I keep my sense of humor
and say only humans…
Only humans can think up silly things like money and paperwork and Time and Countries,
(I mean how do those concepts even have meaning? They are very silly when you think about them too long)
And sometimes I think I don’t belong to humanity, or maybe humanity doesn’t belong to me.
And it makes me sad. And I don’t know where to turn.
And so here I am God, turning to you, because you promise I belong to you.
And maybe to the grass and the stars and the sea–even though I’m not really a nature child.
And secretly I think maybe I belong more to books and words and imaginary worlds that don’t even exist.
But either way, God. I guess we are figuring it out.
You, me, and this silly thing called humanity,
on this place called earth.
Good thing you made us with these things called jokes–
That I admit was a good idea on your part God.
My youngest made a good one yesterday.
Want to hear it? What do you call a bee that explodes in laughter?
Bee End, God,
