Poem about belief in God
Why Should I Believe

Why should I
Believe You're there,
Have I seen You

The Book says that
You did it all,
Freed the Hebrews
Made Jericho fall.

Yet no one saw you
Lest they die,
Couldn't look You
In the eye.

If You exist
Why do we bear,
Pain and suffering
Fear, despair?

War and murder
Child abuse,
Starvation, hatred
Lynching's noose.

Perhaps that's why
You sent Your Son,
To show us here
What should be done.

Use our free will
To help mankind,
Then step by step
We may just find,

Behind the suffering
And the fear,
If we look
We'll feel You near.

If we love
instead of hate,
We'll be approaching
Heaven's Gate.

And so in Father
Spirit, Son,
I do believe
You are the One.
