My View - Poem by ivor or ivor.e hogg

I view the world in wonderment
the daily miracles I see.
Don’t come about by accident
at least that’s how its seems to me.
Considering the evidence
it would appear there is a plan
much greater than the mind of man
The truth is nobody knows for sure.
You’re free to choose what you accept
Childhood beliefs may long endure.
Some you believe and some reject
What I propose is tolerance
give all beliefs an equal chance.

    Ah, now here is an answer of sorts to the question you asked in poem 431 the previous poem, which you have now partly answered yourself Ivor - - - all we know is what we experience in the life we have and you expressed your observations well here, in that the daily manifestations of a greater intellect than ours has to be admitted - - if so, then we can leave the past and future and live in the miraculous 'here and now'..... another great verse....thank you.......Fay.
