Is there a God Poem

Before I was

I know all about him

Cos I was with him

Now I’m on earth,

I know not him

And I ask

Is there a God?

I learnt from everything I see and touched

I learn from every thought I feel

The world is now making sense

Yet, there are things, feelings and thoughts

I cannot comprehend

And I ask

Is there a God?

I encounter Sufferings and pains

I witness Joy and happiness

I extract lessons and principles from all these

Now it’s time to use them

Yet, I have no answer

And I ask

Is there a God?

Yes! I’ve found His manual

Reading it, it’s inspiring

Thinking it, it’s mind blowing

And I found His words that said

I made evil and good for my pleasure


I can no longer ask

Is there a God?
