Who is Christopher Rivas?
Other than a servant of life.
Who is anybody?
Other than a being designed in Gods image figuring out how to simply be gods image.
You are the visual representation of this invisible thing called God.
I plant the seed. She waters it. Life makes it grow.
“Let us make human beings
In our image
To be like US”
– not me
– Not one
– Like US
I remember borrowing $300 and it feeling like a million.
I haven’t always had money but i had people.
Parents I would put against anyones.
Lovers and friends who would take shots for me.
Listen to me cry. Wash my hair. Make me laugh.
Tell me how foolish I was for holding myself to that standard that no being on earth could.
It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that Life and all it’s things, inhabitants, brothers and sisters, fellow GODS make the seeds grow.
The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And each will be rewarded for their own hard work. For we are all God’s. For we are all workers and lovers and students and guru’s; and we are God’s fields, we are God’s buildings.
Whatever you were saying that I did, I needed you to be here for it.
Whatever you think I can do, I need you to remind me.
Whatever it is, I need you.
I need my gods, al of them, big and small.
