No gods have I

No Gods have I

No gods have I, I’ve let them go
I don’t need props no more
I don’t know where I’m going to
No one is ever sure
Though questions leave me curious
The fear is all but gone
I only know with all my heart
That life just carries on

But what is life, you all may ask
And I can only tell you
It’s you, it’s me, it’s everything
From Earth to the skies so blue
Birth and death may come and go
But life goes on forever
Nothing can destroy this force
Not any kind of weather.

How do we live without the trees
Minus the moon, or sun
And what about this gravity
We need these every one
And they need me, because I’m here
And I was meant to be
And really everything that is
It turns out to be me.

    Peter, we seem to be polar opposites where God is concerned. I had many gods at one time and gave all of them up but one. The sovereign God of Abraham walks daily with me through all my trials and tribulations. I am certain that He paid a debt He didn't owe because I owed a debt I could not pay. I notice on another post that you are a Vietnam vet.... You might like "Ballad of Sammy Taylor" found on my page.. I would appreciate your comment...Thank you for your service... Jake

    Hi John, I guess we all get through life in our own way.it seems like you have found your peace and that is beautiful. I also feel at peace, and love my life very much. I have been on your site once and I did see your ballad, I will go there and read it, and thanks for your comments, my friend Peter
