Personal and impersonal

O personal God,

Why are You everywhere?

I can't freely walk,

I can't freely talk,

I can't even freely sleep.


O impersonal God,

You are so clever.

You know how to think,

You know how to play hide-and-seek.

For my sake,

For Your sake,

Stay more with me,

If not always with me.
