Gain knowledge

I am but a child
in this study of life
seeking the answer 
of why we have life

at time's I am wrong 
with my study and guess
I look to find answers 
and only find trash

yet sometimes I hit
on the right problem solve
sometimes I find
a solution of gold

Yes I am christian
I beleive in our christ
but do not feel proud 
of the way they lead life

one day at a church 
does not forgive sin
we can not kill people 
and then hope to win

Instead we should walk
With Gods bonds of love
prove that we're worthy
teach peace and sweet love

Our ministers turn 
the people away
hurting young children
is not then Gods way

to gain the respect 
the church needs to learn
respect is not given
It has to be earned

each day that we walk
with god at our side
we have to gain knowledge
With wisdom we climb

to over come problems
that face all man-kind
with science against us
destroying our faith

we need to build wisdom
to rebuild Gods grace
with wisdom we study 
our own building blocks

Destroy what is wrong
in our thinking and blocks
am I then always 
the center of truth

Perhaps there is darkness 
in my thinking too
perhaps there is light 
in the sky's made of blue

perhaps if we look 
at each thinking man
we can find a prenumbra
of dackness and gray

sometimes they are right 
in the things that they say
sometimes the are wrong 
it as simply that way

make up your mind
no timid mud grass
don't be a sheep 
that is following jack

study the theories
both sides of the line
please keep an open
and questioning mind

perhaps we'll examine 
and studying hard
the truth we will cleave 
from the mystery card
