Behind the mirror

Is God angry?

"Are you an angry god?" I asked
"Come and see for yourself", he beckoned
So I came,
And I looked,
And I studied,
And saw -
A lust for annihilation
And death…

And I was confused,
So I pressed him,
"Lord, are you really like this?"
Patiently, his voice called me closer
To peer at the images
Of jealousy,
but wait!
There was something familiar about that sight
And I saw -
It was a mirror.
"Lord, this is human wrath,
So where are you?"

The quiet voice replied,
"To see me
Without seeing yourself,
You will need to come
Into the secret place
Behind the mirror.
