Inside Job

External God
Is a being
That has power
Over you

Internal God
Is a being
That empowers
You

External God
Commands you obey
Follow the rules
Or you’ll surely pay

Internal God
Makes suggestions
And offers guidance
That always prospers

External God
Takes all the credit
When life is good
And blames you
When life is bad

Internal God
Gives you the credit
When life is good
Gently counsels you
When life is bad

External God
Is a tricky shapeshifter
Sometimes benign
Sometimes the tester

Internal God
Is consistently true
Has no tricky tests
For confusing you

External God
Needs to be appeased
With words of praise
Or a pretty please

Internal God
Sings your praises
For you are the beloved
It seeks to please
