God Prays To Man

Stephen Messing's avatar Stephen Messing

My father wrote this poem when I was a child. It sounded pompous to me when I first read it, but as the years went on it gave me respect for God. As a gift for my father, I wrote his poem in freehand calligraphy using ink, and burned the edges for a historic look. Coming from a family of dysfunction, it was the first time he told me he loved me. My father has since passed away, but I want to enter this art piece in his honor.
