Treasure Island

Ted Christopher

Is There a God

Silently I awoke
Into a dream
Only to see
Destruction on t.v

-La Dolce Vita

A child whispers
The leaves have fallen
A man wonders
Why the trees are bare
Into the night
I still stare
Like a child
I feel his fear

Coming over me, surrounding me
It is all around me
Like darkness that overshadows a light
It brings upon visions that appear in my sight
They reappear, but disappear
And without warning
I see him there

Following orders, obeying the law
Misunderstanding, the truth of it all
(When the leaves will fall)
I whisper…

Is there a God
Watching over one tonight
Showing one the light
Is there a God

A mother will bare the pain of a child
And a child will seek comfort from a stranger
When a stranger is someone you know in danger


(left speaker)
Upon my shirt I wear his stains
(right speaker)
I try to was them away
(left speaker)
But the blood remains
(right speaker)
Do you feel the same


When faith becomes obscure
And hope is as painful as fear
Where love, love is a reflection
You see –in the mirror
Where no one seems to care
(Why the trees are still bare)
I wonder…

Is there a God
To take this pain away
To do what the bible did say
To pray upon today
Is there a God

Can you show me the way
Can you give me a sign
Like water turning to wine
Now is the time.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
