Imago Dei

Imago Dei

written by: Peter Lilly



All I ever wanted was a mirage,
It’s easier to find than real water.

There are words you’ve not yet learnt,
The origins of your name and number.

There are numbers you cannot count to,
And they mean nothing.

All I ever wanted was to own somewhere,
Until I started eating my clothes, like a sentient moth.

All I ever wanted was to swot myself
Into something useful and inanimate.

But I realise, I am so much more
Than useful.
