Have You Lost Your Faith? - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Have you lost your faith,
Is it hard to believe?
In spirits and wraiths,
And your heart only grieves?

Do you need some proof,
Of a deity divine?
Is your head too aloof,
Do you need a sign?

Look all around you,
What more proof do you need?
Than the sky of blue,
And the miracle of seeds.

There is air to breathe,
And water to drink.
The Earth underneath,
That's enough don't you think?

Belief in God can be remiss,
Either you don't, or you do.
But in your mind, just dwell on this,
Our God, believes in you.
