1. The first time I found God
Was when I was 15.

I found God in a pen.
I scribbled down words
And he brought them to life.

2. They found God in their phone.
Instead of handling the awkwardness
Of the party,
They prayed to God to get them out.

3. He found God in his paycheck.
He locks himself in his office
As if it was a church,
Hoping to see God again.

I think I saw him praying
Last week when I visited.

4. She found God
In the mirror.

When she looked at God
In the eyes,
She freaked out
And punched the mirror until it shattered.
The devil put his hand over
Her fist and told her it’ll be alright.

5. They found God in each other.
I thought that would make them happy
But every time they’re together,
They throw the Devil at each other
In an odd game of Dodge ball.

6. He found God
At the bottom
Of a Bottle.
And every time he sees him,
God shows him a little piece
Of heaven,
Then helps him vomit out the demons
Inside of him.

7. She found God in a needle.
Then she found God in herself.

I don’t know what happened
To her after that.

8. She found God smothered
On a razor blade.

When he bled out of her wrists
Like water park slides,
He looked
At her and said,
“This isn’t fun anymore,
Why don’t you come to heaven with me?”

9. My family found God
7670 miles away from home.
We fled from our war torn village
And found God waving to us
At the other side of the ocean.

10. I found God last year
While riding my bike.

He smiled just before pushing
Me out of the way
Such that the truck glazed me,
Knocking me off my bike.

The devil was standing next to me
Smiling.
Sometimes I still see him waiting at
My doorstep,
He’s always dressed very nicely:
A suit and a tie.

I think
He’s waiting to take me in.
About addictions, hopes and dreams. Used God/Devil as metaphors.

I know you get it a lot but it's definitively well written, maximizing effectiveness of the metaphors. Well done mate!

Well done! They both make me reconsider how people find God in mysterious ways.
