What I Believe

Where can we go when times are tough?
To whom can we give our trust?
Religious people have their God,
and they say faith is a must.

I’m not quite as religious now
as I was in days of yore.
Belief in God I still maintain,
but proof I’m not looking for.

The friends I have and that I count
as the truest friends of mine
are not so many, but to have
true friends is a gift divine.

And always I can count upon
my sisters and my mother.
I thank God for a family
that loves well one another.

To love oneself and trust oneself,
OH, may all souls feel this way,
and know that truth and joy they’ll find
in the "great beyond" one day!

    Hey Andrea. I love this write, so sincere and telling it just how it is. The only way to find the truth is to take a look within. Deep within is a river of joy. Once you have found it you will never have to ask the questions again. I tell you this from my heart. I enjoyed your read, and give it a seven, my friend...peter

    Love and Trust on your family is so important they are always around this part of our lives. Friends those that are close will always be there to trust when we are in need Hugs Eve

    Very optimistic work here. I often talk with my sisters and mother - my father passed away about 7 years ago. He was a fine piano player and our place was always full of the sound of music. "A great beyond"? Let's hope so! I will try to get you out may latest chapbook today! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

    God is the unified factor of this world and each one of us is a proof of his existence! Now since you believe in the great beyond you are religious for the word religious, as you know, comes from the Latin word "Religare" which means "unite" in this case the physical and the metaphysical world! Great poem, profound and dynamic dear, Andrea! A seven!

    Right on, Andrea. : ) It has really hit home with me in the past couple years how important (and magical and awesome) family can be, and this is with my parents turning 80 years old. And I shudder to think of the pain that exists in some families.

    Excellent piece my friend. I think this one is a winner for sure. How very true that Oh May All Souls Feel This Way. If only all families could have the unity and love of each other this poem speaks of. Great job. A 777 from me. God Bless, JB

    All you need to know about God is that He is Love. He loves you and wants you to gain heavenly bliss. Any other knowledge is superfluous.

    God sometimes I question him too.
