You ask me if I know God.
If I say yes,
Then it would not be true.
If I say no,
Then I would be lying to you.

Let me say no more.
For if you were a clever sleuth,
You would hear my silence
Signaling the truth.
Joy cannot be bought or taken or bargained for. It must be given and even then, the receiver must receive it unknowingly and anonymously. There is no I in joy.
