Within Their Restricted Mental Limits - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

There are more who pray and complain,
Than there are those who pray with a faith committed.
There are those who say they pray everyday...
And remain fearful to let God with them,
Have His way.

There are those who receive answers to questions asked.
To still deny those messages given.
There are those who claim they 'believe' as they do.
But only if what is believed fits the image,
Within their restricted mental limits!

And nothing the Creator has made even today,
Has ever stopped to be confirmed...
By anyone on Earth,
Through use of learned scriptures or quoted verse...
Can swear to declare God has finished!
