Faith - Poem by Robert Uy

“I will, ” said my friend, “challenge your faith! ”
So I looked to the stars for proof.
“No, no, no, that can’t be, ” said my friend.
“For those were evolved, not created
From supernovas, and black-holes, and big-bangs;
Science has explained so! ”
Then I looked at people passing by as proof.
“No, no, no, that can’t be, ” said my friend.
“For those were evolved, not created.
For the need to survive, man acquired intelligence;
For the need to travel fast, man developed limbs.
Science has said so! ”
“No, no, no, that can’t be, ” said I,
“For if man had evolved,
If for the need to travel fast
We would not have had planes
(Which are, by the way, created, not evolved):
Instead, we’d have had wings! ”
