Treasure Island

Theresa Ann Moore

(1940 / Michigan, U.S.A.)

Who, What, Where, and Why?

Who answers prayers?
Who guides the way?
Who forgives a sinner?
Who promises a better day?

What is the reason for existence?
What causes the world to revolve?
What gives the seasons a cycle?
What power allowed man to evolve?

Look far and wide
Search for the light
Remove the blindness
From your longing sight.

Are you still looking for the answer?
Are you wondering where to start?
The answer is the almighty creator…
He can be found in your thankful heart.

Have you discovered the purpose for your life?
Have you played your part convincingly enough?
Be honest and do your best to be genuinely sincere.
When judgement arrives, God will recognize a bluff.

    Amazing that one 3 letter word answers so many questions. 'When judgement arrives, God will recognize a bluff.' You always have something in your poems that make them special. (Report) Reply

    I've arrived here through all the other eighteen poems you have on view and, to paraphrase you,

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
