Is There a God? - poem by Michelle Murphy
My faith is strong
And my knowledge Of God in its fullness.
Yet I still ask The big questions
While the details Are filled in,
From life experience, From pondering,
Hard knock discussions, From facing down reality.
Is God for real?
I say there are 2 answers.
I decided on evidence To believe in God
But accept I’ll always wonder a bit.
For I know the angels And demons up close,
But God is so big a deal He’s hard to touch.
The 2nd option Is to not to believe in God
But ponder, If in some minute way only, That He does exist.
To know concretely Is to ignore mysticism
Or be under the heavy influence Of materialism.
Basically a babe Who’s faith has not yet been tested.
We are born into adversity, Into our fleshly bodies.
We must rise to the occasion.
The possibility of God Is a fact.
Some might dare to say The possibility
Of no God Is also a fact.
I dare to believe
And I dare to say.
This is facing down reality.
