A Real God

An idol of gold on a sparkling pedestal,

fresh citrus fruit left before it on a plate.

People bow to this man-made object,

with the belief that it controls their fate.

*

A celebrity adorned in shiny gold chains,

rings set with the finest stones and jewels.

They credit success to their own making.

attributing belief in the divine to fools.

*

The vanity of a powerful dictator,

convinced they control their own future.

That’s as likely as a severed head,

being reattached with a simple suture?

*

Neither an idol of gold or a human being,

can form a man or woman from scratch.

No person can predict every future event,

an earthquake, election, and boxing match.

*

Mankind didn’t just evolve from a monkey,

no animal is an ancestor or missing link.

Science thinks they can explain everything,

using complex formulas and logic to think.

*

God is the Creator of the universe,

His power beyond any range of thought.

He loves us more than we can understand,

and our sins His Son’s death bought.

*

Please show me a greater love from any god,

idol, or object that you choose to thank.

As for me I will believe in the power of God,

it’s a firm belief you can take to the bank.
