I Called His Name

I looked,
I called His name, again and again, I called,
I talked to others
I read, I listened.
And I called His name, alone, and I called with others.
I called in darkness and in stillness
I called in celebration, with noise and music.
I read, I reasoned, I argued.
I was angry, I was lazy, I was frustrated.
I pleaded with Him, I derided Him.
I refused to give in,
and I called his name still.
I called from a small room.
a crowded church,
a personal retreat.
I called him through four seasons.

Once He answered.
