Genuine

I don’t need
To be around people
Who agree with me
Who have been where I’ve been
Who believe what I believe

But I do need
To be around people

Who acknowledge there is mystery

Who see value in the questions
Even if they don’t agree with the answers

Who admit there exists
The slightest trace of logic
In my journey from there to here

I think that’s what bugs me most

The tendency to judge anyone with questions
The need to label them as fallen
The impulse to pull those who question
Back into compliance

Compliance
With what
Someone else
Has decided
To believe

I need to be around people
Who can see
That my walk with God
Is genuine

And it is mine

And that is enough

For me
