Treasure Island

Andy Carl


True God


You think you've found God, but you're far off
He ain't hidin' in that little book.
He's right between your furrowed brow.
The reason why, the way, the how.

It'll never really fully be
understood or plain to see
but open your mind and close your ears
listen to you heart and forget your fears.
You don't need ears to hear your heart
You wanna find God? Thats just the start.

Can you love something that you can't see?
Or do you let everyone else tell you what to believe?
The Truth of God will never be understood,
but will live forever in the hearts of the Good.
You can sit in church and confess your sins
but you dont KNOW God, you're just convinced.

You can change your clothes and powder your face
you can change your sex or even your race,
but youll never be able to escape or dodge
the fact that we are ALL the children of God.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
