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.

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;
