The Agnostic Acrostic

Such a silly concept is this,
killing men they know exist.
everyone all the while,
put their faith in denial.
till all the people with the power,
insist their faiths will be devoured.
can truly someone say they know,
if everybody wants to show.
something unseen that's truly there,
my guess is as good as theirs.

readily I do believe,
everything I can percieve.
in that I know I put my trust,
given truths one knows they must.
never say fire's not hot,
simply prove to me it's not.

so now I sit on my high horse,
under God cannot be forced.
put your faith in what YOU know,
really I can't tell you though.
enter in to your belief,
make me not religions theif.
everything says that though we dream,

Robert Dixon

    You are so right, Robert, when you say, "..under God cannot be forced." God never would ask that. Looking at the universe and all it contains, I'm in awe of the precision of everything not made by man..we KNOW that oxygen exists even though we cannot see it. That being reality, God is also a reality for me. Neveertheless, I respect your opinion dear Robert. Hope your weekend's going well. Love, Annalise
