"What Do We Need But God?" by Joe DiMino.

You let me in
And then you kick me out

I come to you
And you discard me—
Having already taken
My where I have been
With all my places
Of going

It is a perfect trap
Your enclosure of needing—
Your lie
Of a righteous life through seeking,
Turning me
From the comforter
Of my being—

What do we need
But God?
