God, Love, Truth and Light

If you want God
I can show you to the forest
but that’s a tree you’ll have to find yourself

If you want Love
I can point at the moon all day
but it is the night that you’ll be needing

If you want Truth
I can teach you all about addictions
but that’s a drug you just can’t shake

If you want Light
I can flash these shining sirens
but, sadly, most choose to fall back asleep

Scott Thomas Outlar spends the hours flowing and fluxing with the ever-changing currents of the Tao River while laughing at and/or weeping over life’s existential nature. His words have appeared recently in venues such as Dissident Voice, Mad Swirl, The Fat Damsel, Yellow Chair Review, and RASPUTIN.
