139. I used my powers

I used my money-power
To buy God.
God smiled, and then cried.

I used my love-power
To buy God.
God cried, and then smiled.

I used my surrender-power
To win God.
God cried and cried.

In God's Smile
I discovered how far
He wants to remain:
Farther than the farthest.

In God's Cry
I discovered how near
He has always been:
Nearer than the nearest.
